Welcome scholars and families! Together we have developed a strong sense of pride in our school, our mission to learn and our desire to explore. Our core values are the center of our culture. Our culture is designed around a set of core values that focuses on teamwork and high achievement. We encourage our scholars to challenge themselves, develop their talents, make an impact on the local community and seek ways to positively affect change throughout the world.
We focus on all elements which affect our scholars and their life achievements, putting emphasis on physical fitness and nutrition as well as their academic endeavors. We infuse technology into all aspects of our program, as well as including multiple language acquisition, arts, music and hands on learning techniques.
We will continue to soar, growing our program tailored to the needs of our Casa Grande scholars.

“Growth comes from person-to-person communication, from the powerful standards of ‘people like us’. And it comes from activating people who are ready to be activated.“ -Seth Godin
Complete the Application for Student Admission and Necessary Documentation
Little Innovators Preschool enrolls children all year on a space available basis. Children must be 4 by September 1st. Groups are formed to balance gender and age.
Before children are admitted parents are required to fill out an Enrollment Packet containing the following:
- Child’s Enrollment Packet
- Emergency Information and Immunization Card
- Copy of child’s Immunization Record
- Copy of child’s birth certificate
Parents will also be asked to sign a contract for the school year and to leave a $75 deposit to secure a spot in our preschool.
When your applications reaches the top of the list a spot becomes available to you, the school will contact you immediately.
It is not possible for us to determine your child’s chances of being offered a spot. Once our classes are full, any spots that open up are the result of student withdrawals. Although we do typically see a number of spots open up before the start of school, we have no way of knowing when spots will open up or how many spots will become available.
The Little Innovators Preschool provides preschoolers a developmentally appropriate early childhood experience that centers on play, group collaboration, problem-solving and critical thinking, allowing them to develop a growth mindset to help them excel in elementary school.
Just like our parent school, the Grande Innovation Academy, our culture focuses on skills and proficiencies your child will need throughout life. The Grande Innovation Academy developed an academic culture that takes education beyond the textbook reading, writing, and arithmetic, including good time management, proper study habits, concentration and the ability to set attainable goals.
The Little Innovators Preschool sets the foundation for a successful transition into elementary school. We follow the Early Childhood Standards established by the Arizona Department of Education. We provide an integrated experience for students with varying abilities and levels.
At the Grande Innovation Academy and the Little Innovators Preschool, we believe long-term healthy eating habits developed at an early age are easier to stick to later in life and that healthy eating habits have a positive effect both mentally and physically on every scholar, every day.
The Little Innovators Preschool provides preschoolers a developmentally appropriate early childhood experience that centers on play, group collaboration, problem solving and critical thinking, allowing them to develop a growth mindset to help them excel in elementary school.
The Little Innovators Preschool will develop preschoolers that love to learn and can adapt to various learning situations including group collaboration and independent work time.
Our teachers make preschool safety a top priority in their classrooms. Communication with the parents is a priority too. If you have any questions, we encourage you to call our front desk or stop by for a tour. Parents are welcome to stop by during operational hours to check out our school.

If you need further assistance, call the National Center for Homeless Education at the toll-free HelpLine number: 1-800-308-2145.
If your family lives in any of the following situations:
- In a shelter, motel, vehicle, or campground
- On the street
- In an abandoned building, trailer, or other inadequate accommodations, or
- Doubled up with friends or relatives because you cannot find or afford housing
Then, your preschool-aged and school-aged children have certain rights or protections under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act.
Your children have the right to:
- Go to school, no matter where you live or how long you have lived there. They must be given access to the same public education, including preschool education, provided to other children.
- Continue in the school they attended before you became homeless or the school they last attended, if that is your choice and is feasible. If a school sends your child to a school other than the one you request, the school must provide you with a written explanation and offer you the right to appeal the decision.
- Receive transportation to the school they attended before your family became homeless or the school they last attended, if you or a guardian request such transportation.
- Attend a school and participate in school programs with children who are not homeless. Children cannot be separated from the regular school program because they are homeless.
- Enrol in school without giving a permanent address. Schools cannot require proof of residency that might prevent or delay school enrolment.
- Enrol and attend classes while the school arranges for the transfer of school and immunization records or any other documents required for enrolment.
- Enrol and attend classes in the school of your choice even while the school and you seek to resolve a dispute over enrolling your children.
- Receive the same special programs and services, if needed, as provided to all other children served in these programs.
- Receive transportation to school and to school programs.
When you move, you should do the following:
- Contact the school district’s local liaison for homeless education (see phone number below) for help in enrolling your child in a new school or arranging for your child to continue in his or her former school. (Or, someone at a shelter, social services office or the school can direct you to the person you need to contact.)
- Contact the school and provide any information you think will assist the teachers in helping your child adjust to new circumstances.
- Ask the local liaison for homeless education, the shelter provider, or a social worker for assistance with clothing and supplies, if needed
