    Children 3-5 years of age meeting qualifying criteria may attend the preschool at Copper Creek. 

    Children DO NOT need to be potty trained to attend special needs preschool.



    Special Education Preschool is a two-hour program that meets four days a week.  Preschool follows the Amphitheater calendar, observing the same holidays and days off.  We NEVER have half days.  Preschool NEVER meets on Monday.  Students do not attend both AM and PM classes.  As a general rule, our younger students (3 year olds) attend the morning session and our older students (5 year olds) attend the afternoon session. 




    Appointments with Mrs. Larson are available by appointment.  

    If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call (520) 696-6827.
