Creekside Early Learning Center
Creekside Early Learning Center is an all-kindergarten school with 300 students. The school serves both general-education students and a full range of special-education students in our preschool. We offer Transitional Kindergarten classes for student that turn five after the September 1st cut off, but before December 2nd. In addition, we offer Early Admission Kindergarten (EAK) for the students that turn 5 between December 2nd and January 31. We also have a fee-base dual language preschool on our campus. There is a very active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and numerous parents (and grandparents) volunteer in the classroom. Our school is dedicated to providing a strong, balanced instructional program for all students.
In addition to the traditional kindergarten classrooms, Creekside Early Learning Center offers a Spanish-immersion program that promotes high academic achievement while supporting second-language development and cross-cultural understanding for all students enrolled. We are implementing the program in kindergarten. Academic subjects are taught to the students in English and Spanish using the 50/50 model. The program provides students with a rigorous learning experience in Spanish and English that is both culturally and linguistically responsive. Our Spanish-immersion students will become bilingual, biliterate and culturally competent learners who demonstrate high academic achievement in all areas. The students demonstrate global competencies to engage effectively with the wider world and cultures.
The strategic plan for the Alpine Union School District promotes the goal of guiding children to become responsible, productive citizens who are lifelong learners. To help students achieve this goal, the students will rotate daily through our Pathway time, which incorporates core reading instruction with approximetly a 7:1 student-teacher ratio, phonemic awareness, word work, keyboarding, Sparks and the computer lab. These activities will increase the success of all students.
Creekside Early Learning Center is the most magical place on earth—next to Disneyland of course!
