Lil' Longhorn Preschool Gets State Approval


The Lil' Longhorn program at Payson High School is now a fully licensed and accredited preschool.


The Payson High School Child Development class will open their preschool doors Jan. 18 to children 3 to 5 years of age. The preschool was licensed last spring by the Arizona Department of Health Services. The group is shown with the new playground equipment recently purchased.

"We will be able to offer a fully functioning preschool environment," PHS teacher Devon Wells said. Wells teaches the preschool program's child development class for student-teachers.

Last semester, PHS students studied child-related issues and the learning processes of preschool-aged children.

"They are excited to use their knowledge in teaching children in their own Lil' Longhorn pre-school," Wells said.

The preschool, which begins Jan. 18, will be open 10:40 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. The registration fee is $25 per quarter or $50 per semester. The school is open to all children 3 to 5 years of age.

"This is a great opportunity for children to obtain socialization outside their home and learn the skills needed for kindergarten," said Wells.
