The Ankeny Community Schools Preschool Program is a fully integrated, multi-age program. There are many reasons to provide opportunities for children of various ages and stages of development to play, learn, and interact with each other. Through positive interactions with children of various skill levels, children become sensitive to the needs of others and learn to appreciate individual differences at an early age. In integrated settings, all children have the opportunity to form friendships with a wide variety of peers.
Preschool curriculum is specifically designed and delivered to allow children of a wide range of abilities to access learning at their current level in order to grow forward.
