Avondale Preschool Curriculum was developed by Jennifer Jones. She received her Master of Science from Brigham Young University in Special Education and Counseling. She is a certified K-12 teacher and has over ten years of teaching experience in public and private schools.
After Jennifer graduated, she decided to leave teaching in the public school system to become a full time mother. On the side, she began tutoring from her home. Through her teaching and tutoring experience, Jennifer noticed how many grade school and upper grade students were struggling with basic reading concepts and skills. She wondered if an earlier introduction to reading could have helped many of these children. Through her education and experience in the classroom, she realized the importance of a balanced literacy approach. She soon set out to develop an early childhood academic preschool program that combined the benefits of phonics and whole language; and thus Avondale Preschool was born.
The Avondale Preschool Curriculum has been carefully developed and refined over the past fourteen years and has proven highly effective on thousands of students. It is a curriculum that works with children of all different learning styles and abilities.
Over the past five years, Avondale’s Pre-K curriculum became published nationally and is now being used in over 200 preschools and school districts across the United States. It is also being used in Hong Kong, Singapore and Italy.
To ensure that your child has the best learning experience possible, each teacher has been carefully selected and has gone through extensive training. Avondale Preschool teachers are caring and nurturing and they teach with love and enthusiasm. Teachers also receive ongoing training on a monthly basis through in-services and classroom observations.
