 Our Curriculum:


Woodbridge Private School offers a structured academic program from preschool through kindergarten. 

Our curriculum is designed and implemented to meet and exceed the Arizona Early Childhood Education Standards set by the Arizona Department of Education.

The core subjects of math, language arts, classical literature, science,

 and social studies are taught at all levels.


The curriculum is enriched with art appreciation, physical education, music appreciation, dramatic arts and "green" methods.



Woodbridge believes in Character Education Education of character is considered equally with academic education, children learning to take care of themselves, their environment, each other - cooking, cleaning, building, moving gracefully, speaking politely, being considerate and helpful.

Assessment is by portfolio and the teacher's observation

and record keeping. The test of whether or not the system is working lies in the accomplishment and behavior of the children, their happiness, maturity, kindness, and love of learning and level of work.

At Woodbridge Private School, students are encouraged to:

Our teachers utilize a variety of teaching strategies which enable our students (and teachers) to build and develop knowledge

and skills from year to year.


Woodbridge Private School is a wonderful place

for the early learner to begin.

Our small class sizes and our warm family

 atmosphere provide a great base for our academic programs.

 Woodbridge Private School uses the

Core Knowledge® curriculum.

Core Knowledge is specifically designed to provide your child with the solid foundation he or she will need for later learning in kindergarten and beyond. The Core Knowledge Preschool Program is based on scientific research about how young children learn, as well as research into the best preschool practices around the world. 

We are excited to offer this outstanding program to our children.
