Vision Statement

The Lodi Unified School District Board of Education strives to help develop the full potential of each child.  Each child is a valuable and unique person.  In order to assist families and children in their growth and development, the Lodi Unified School District supports:


teachers in the development of teaching strategies that will meet the needs and interests of the students served.


the development of a curriculum that includes materials, learning activities, time and space, and addresses the academic and social needs of students to promote life-long learning.


These goals can best be achieved in a setting that promotes questioning and active learning.


This vision statement is incorporated into the Lodi USD School Readiness & Preschool Program by providing a setting that is developmental in nature.  The environment should foster a feeling of security and comfort, both physical and emotional for the child.  It should be rich in materials and equipment, provide for physical activity and free movement, and provide many opportunities for a variety of learning experiences.  It should also incorporate an enthusiastic staff who are confident and nurturing in their interactions with both children and their families.  The staff must see each child and family individually and as part of the community at large and address their needs professionally.


Planned Language Approach is a guided process that supports Head Start and State programs to plan and implement high-quality language and early literacy services in all classrooms and for all children.


The Lodi USD Preschool Programs are an equal opportunity provider.  Applications for enrollment are accepted without regard to sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability.  This program welcomes the enrollment of children with disabilities.  Lodi Unified School District understands the requirement of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to make reasonable accommodations for such children.  An open door policy that encourages parents to participate in daily activities, whenever possible, is followed.
