The recipe for a lifelong love of learning starts with a hint of enthusiasm, a dash of inspiration, a dollop of book smarts and a large heap of love. Canutillo Independent School District's Early Childhood Education Program inspires the littlest learners in pre-K and kindergarten by not only stimulating their minds but by primarily nurturing their social and emotional well-being. This approach helps build well-rounded individuals with high confidence to bolster their future academic success.

“A child’s early years are the foundation for his or her future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development,” said Sandra Carrillo, Canutillo ISD early childhood and new teacher coordinator. “Academics is important but we also make sure we are focused on the whole child to foster individual creativity.”

At Canutillo ISD, our early childhood education programs are inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. We believe in nurturing young children’s social and emotional well-being to build essential life skills that promote future academic success and develop strong well-rounded individuals.

Research has shown the significance of early childhood education as an instrumental building block to a child’s future success academically and socially. Through a high-quality pre-K program, young children learn more about the world around them and how to interact with others outside of their parents and household members. They begin to socialize and engage with their classmates and teachers while exploring a variety of activities and situations to discover interests and garner a greater self awareness.
