Let's Get Ready for School!
Preschool is a great way for children to get a jump start on their education. Kids who have attended preschool are better prepared for school once they reach kindergarten age. The City of Victorville offers preschool programs for children ages 2 to 5 years. Our main focus is on socialization skills like sharing and classroom behavior, but we'll also learn some early academic skills. Classes are held from September to May each year. Here are some of the classes we offer:
