WVCA Preschool is proud to be one of the only Tracy preschools participating in San Joaquin County's First 5 Raising Quality initiative. We are committed to high quality care, ongoing professional development, and integrating research based effective practice. We believe that parents are their child's first teacher, and work together providing children with a lasting foundation for a successful future
WVCA Preschool implements a progressive play based emergent curriculum organized by age and development. Our curriculum provides hands-on learning through intentional learning activities, games, and play that lead to a successful Kindergarten entry. Teachers are warm, positive, loving, caring, and professional early childhood educators.
WVCA Preschool is undergoing exciting improvements in 2019 that includes a new play structure, preschool program offerings extended into all schedule options, and additional quality improvement measures associated to Raising Quality participation. These efforts have been celebrated with special recognition as Best Preschool in San Joaquin County. Thank you to our school and church community for supporting us in achieving this recognition.
