About Us

Winters State Preschool Center is funded by the Early Education and Support Division of the California Department of Education, as a State Preschool Program, and is the preschool for the Winters Joint Unified School District.  At Winters State Preschool Center, intentional approaches are used to implement educationally enriched curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and encourages literacy, language development, cognitive development, and social and emotional development.   The components of the curriculum areas are aligned with the California Department of Education Child Development Desired Results for Families and Children (DRDP).

The program offered to preschool families by the Winters Joint Unified School District is based on the following beliefs:

  • The primary goal of the Winters State Preschool Center is to work with students and families towards student growth, both academically and personally.
  • The primary language that each student brings to school is an asset on which to build.
  • There is an appreciation and a respect for the different cultures and languages represented by the district’s students and their families.
  • Parent involvement in every aspect of the educational process is valuable.  Therefore, the district, its administrators, teachers and other employees seek to establish collaborative relationships with parents to plan, implement and review the program offered by the Winters State Preschool Center.
  • The most powerful instruction is driven by student needs.  Differentiated and carefully targeted instruction maximizes student growth.

Winters State Preschool Center offers two part-day classes, Monday through Friday:

  • Morning: 8:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m.
  • Afternoon: 12:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
