Dear Early Childhood Families:
Welcome to AIS! My name is Luis Carrillo, and I am the principal of our Early Childhood Program. I have been an educator for over 18 years with a teaching certificate with a specialization in Learning Disabilities, a bachelor's degree in Clinical Psychology, and a master's degree in Applied Neuropsychology. This background underpins my approach to teaching and leadership, as pedagogy and psychology should be embedded in every classroom; happy children are happy learners.
Our Early Childhood educators prepare the best learning environment for our youngest learners. They monitor their growth through age-appropriate assessment tools. Our top priority is to provide each student with a full opportunity to succeed in school, and for all students to be richly prepared as they progress in our community.
We have put together the strongest possible teaching team, which is our program’s greatest strength. We plan our activities using the Creative Curriculum as our base. Every activity is engaging, hands-on, and intentional. If you visit our classrooms, you might see our Toddlers enjoying the wonderful world of bags or balls of all shapes and sizes. You could experience our Pre-kindergarteners answering inquiry questions during large group sessions and cooking in our kitchen as an intentional teaching experience. In the Kindergarten world, you will see our word scientists playing with letters, names, and sounds to develop their reading and writing identities.
We ensure that all parents are part of their child's school life. Parents are welcome to chat with teachers at drop-off or dismissal, work as classroom volunteers and field trip chaperones, and join our Parent Teacher Organization. We invite parents to lead group activities throughout the year where we share different cultures, traditions, music, and delicious food! Our little ones love having their parents participate in their school life and look forward to attending school daily!
