Early Childhood Education

Playgroup children learning their letters
  • The Migrant Education Program is pleased to provide early childhood education opportunities for the 2024-2025 school year.  Migrant Education currently funds two preschools that operate within the Anchorage School District General Education Preschool Program.  The district uses an application process, needs determination, and a wait list for preschool sign-up.  ASD preschool classrooms strive to provide a safe, positive, and nurturing environment in which to foster each child's academic, language, social, emotional, and motor development.  Teachers design learning activities to meet the unique needs of each child.  The preschool program values the importance of families in learning.


    Migrant Education also provides early learning opportunities through playgroups, for 4-year-old children, not enrolled in a preschool, at home learning kits, and preschool exploration days. Please contact Sarah Randolph-Andrew for more information at Randolph-Andrew_Sarah@asdk12.org
