We welcome your family to the Tri-Valley Little Vikings School. The primary purpose for Little Vikings School is to provide positive experiences for both children and families through the classroom settings.

We have several options for your child within our Little Vikings School. The first option is our traditional Pre-K that is designed to serve students who have been identified as benefiting from an early childhood program and to prepare children for kindergarten. Those students who qualify for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will attend our early childhood (ECE) program. Our next option is a 5 day Viking Care program that is designed to provide a structured school environment with emphasis on socialization skills. A 3-day Viking Care program, running Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week would run within the 5 day program.

We at Tri-Valley recognize some families may need or prefer a full day option. Little Vikings School is set up to accommodate these situations. Children may be enrolled in one of the above half day programs or a combination of the above programs, allowing a full day at school.
