    Mission & Vision

    The Unit 5 Early Learning Program is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment that effectively supports the diverse needs of children and families in our community by using high-quality evidence-based, and inclusive practices to create a foundation for children to be lifelong learners. 

    Unit 5 offers a fun and exciting Pre-Kindergarten program for qualifying students ages three to five. This program is available free of charge to eligible students living within District boundaries. PreK staff determines eligibility and student acceptance into the program. Placement is based on student need.
      
    The purpose of Unit 5's Early Learning program is to provide a stimulating and nurturing environment for young children. Students are given the chance to become successful and build self-confidence. This program is designed to increase student opportunities, help prepare for future achievements, and meet individual needs and goals in eight domains of learning.
