About Preschool

Welcome to the Alta Sierra Preschool 
We have a new preschool director for the 2017-18 school year.  JoAnna Rakestraw is an experienced director who is intent on offering a program that serves and supports the needs of our pre-school families. 
We have two great preschool classes to offer.  We have a 4-year-old class that meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and a 3-year-old class that meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Both classes meet from 8:15 am to 11:15 am.
The preschool operates on the campus of Alta Sierra Elementary in rooms 6 & 7. The program follows the same calendar year as the elementary school but is divided into 3 twelve week sessions.  The 2017-18 preschool calendar is on our website.
Each class provides your child with the opportunity for social & emotional development as well as school readiness preparation. The classes are designed to meet the needs of children individually and as a whole unit.  Activities and curriculum are age and developmental stage appropriate. The preschool has their own time on kindergarten playground for recess use. We also visit the school's library and computer lab. When age appropriate, we are able to attend school wide assemblies.
