About the Preschool

“The school affirms, as its central mission, that every child has the right to a quality education, that higher academic standards must be set and that every child can and will succeed in ways that reflect his or her own unique aptitude and interests.” – The Basic School: A Community for Learning

Learning through play

Our Program

The Sedona Village Learning Center (SVLC) is a preschool for young learners. Our child-centered program uses creativity, inquiry, play and positive relationships to support a life-long love of learning. learning.

We offer part- and full-day enrollment and hands-on and project-based learning experiences in the natural sciences, arts, music, history, world languages and culture.

We work with committed and passionate staff and partners with expertise in their field who bring diverse materials and lessons.

To teach literacy, we use the Pearson School OWL (Opening the World of Learning) program. This is the same curriculum used by the Sedona-Oak Creek Unified School District, which prepares students to enter kindergarten there at the end of the program.

Our curriculum

Our program blends International Baccalaureate curriculum with Montessori style based on the training of our teachers and directors.
