Early Childhood Learning Programs

Early Childhood - Preschool PreKindergarten (formerly TK) and Kindergarten

Welcome to the Irvine Unified School District Early Childhood Learning Information Page!
In IUSD, we are committed to providing the best educational experience imaginable that enhances the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of each child. 
Our Universal Early Childhood Learning Programs are intentionally designed to provide access to developmentally appropriate learning opportunities that align with Kindergarten entry and build a strong foundation for school readiness. Our programs consist of Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, formerly known as Transition Kindergarten (TK), and Kindergarten; and include both general education, specialized instruction and special education. 
The Early Childhood Learning Team believes in providing equitable learning opportunities and experiences across our programs and various school sites. In partnership with parents, we are dedicated to providing high quality, nurturing, and supportive learning experiences that promote the overall development of our students. We are proud to serve our youngest learners! 

As we embark on the upcoming school year, we are excited for the wonderful moments and experiences ahead of us, in all our programs!
