Vision Statement
 “Where children learn they are wonderful!”

 
Mission Statement
The Capital School District Pre-K Program, in partnership with students, families, and the community, is committed to providing a positive, nurturing, initial educational experience. We believe that all children are unique, and it is our mission to instill a love of learning and to encourage them to become independent, self-confident learners who work cooperatively with others.
