The mission of the Aurora Public Schools Early Childhood Education Department is to ensure that all preschool students will transition into kindergarten with the experiences and skills necessary to reach high levels of learning throughout their academic careers.
The ECE Department will provide support to the APS Vista 2015 mission:
“Teach every student the knowledge, skills and values necessary to enter college or a career and become a contributing member of society who flourishes in a diverse, dynamic world.”
The opportunities for early learning provide a strong foundation that will help to ensure academic success.
The Early Childhood Education Department strives to involve the family by emphasizing the important role they play in their child’s education and support families in their roles as nurturers and teachers.
The Early Childhood Education department remains involved in the School Readiness Project. The School Readiness Project utilizes the Qualistar Rating System to ensure that all preschools and child care centers are of the highest quality.
APS Vision Statement:
Graduate every student with the choice to attend college without remediation.
