preschool early education program
PEEP is an Early Childhood Intervention program addressing the needs of children 3-5 years of age.
PEEP provides services to children in the Navajo and Hopi Head Start programs at Cow Springs, Red Lake, Cameron, Gap, Moenkopi and Tuba City Areas.
PEEP is an intervention based early childhood program using the “Creative Curriculum”. We are the Special Education Preschool for TCUSD #15. A certified teacher and two instructional assistants oversee our three classrooms. Other specialized personnel work with the teacher based upon specific individual needs of the children. PEEP is a fun, language rich environment that strives to meet each child’s individual needs and encourages all children to develop to their maximum potential.
