Before & After School Programs

Kindergarten - 4th Grade

Offered by Desert Heights Preschool, there are many benefits to enrolling your child in our before and after school programs, and students kindergarten-4th grade are eligible to enroll. Children will have plenty of time to make new friends, sing, play, explore, learn, and laugh–all under the supervision of our fun, skillful, educated staff. It is a peace of mind for our parents and a wonderful experience for your children.

Play is one aspect of our before and aftercare programs, the other is the most important…learning. Desert Heights Preschool provides an academic aftercare program for your child. Our teachers assure our students are receiving social development, emotional development and academic learning. It is our goal to guide your child through making positive choices, developing new friendships, and learning how to work alongside others.

To enroll in our growing program please inquire at the Desert Heights Preschool office. Space is limited. Please contact Mrs. Carrie Viar for a contract.
