In Our Community

The school experience at Anne Sullivan Preschool is integrated into the life of the communities of southwest Riverside County. Our Open Houses, Parent Workshops, and Staff Development Workshops attract parents as well as members of our community who work with young children. These activities are an opportunity for the community to recognize the potential in its youngest members.

 

Student-Teacher Training and High School Community Service

The school opens its doors to high school students – many of them alumni – and college students in the process of pursuing their higher education. In partnership with the Mount San Jacinto College Child Development and Education Department and other colleges, the school provides the students with the opportunity to work with young children in the learning environment through mentorships with Anne Sullivan Mentor Teachers and in our volunteer programs. Working with First 5 Riverside Children and Families Commission, Riverside County’s  Consortium for Early Learning Services, and Lake Elsinore Unified School District, the school hosts many staff development workshops for teachers.

 

Anne Sullivan School Garden

The school’s educational garden is a project that involves partnerships with parent volunteers, grant giving agencies such as The California Fertilizer Foundation and Jamba Juice and educational agencies such as Preschool Food and Healthy Habits and Garden Education.

 

Healthy Environment

The Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child Care (NAP SACC) is a program designed to promote healthy weight development in preschool children by improving the nutritional quality of food served, amount and quality of physical activity, staff-child interactions, facility nutrition and physical activity policies and practices, and related environmental characteristics.

Anne Sullivan Preschool and Kindergarten is certified by NAP SACC. Our program has demonstrated excellence in providing a healthy environment for your children through healthy eating and active play.

Vegetables are not the only things thriving in the garden: the children are learning the joys of gardening and the wonder of nature.
