PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM


Our preschool curriculum has been written to encompass several areas of inquiry and is aligned with Minnesota’s Early Childhood Indicators of Progress (ECIPs). The ECIPs are Minnesota’s early learning standards that provide a framework for developmentally appropriate expectations from birth to kindergarten. They also align to the Minnesota Kindergarten Academic Standards.


Fridley Preschool 3- and 4-year-old Transdiciplinary Themes include:

Who we are

An inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities, and cultures; rights and responsibilities; what it means to be human.

How we express ourselves 
An inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.

How the world works 
An inquiry into the natural world and its laws; the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies; how humans use their understanding of scientific principles; the impact of scientific and technological advances on society and on the environment.

Where we are in place and time 
An inquiry into orientation in place and time; personal histories; homes and journeys; the discoveries, explorations and migrations of humankind; the relationships between and the interconnectedness of individuals and civilizations, from local and global perspectives.

How we organize ourselves 
An inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment.

Sharing the planet 
An inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution.

Additionally, our preschool promotes the International Baccalaureate (IB) Learner Profile values:

• Inquirers
• Risk-takers
• Knowledgeable
• Balanced
• Reflective
• Thinkers
• Communicators
• Caring
• Principled
• Open-minded


School districts rely on state and local funding to support and maintain their schools. On November 5, 2019, Fridley Public Schools will ask its community to approve an operational referendum. Funds from operational levies are used to support academic programs for students, staffing and student support services such as social emotional learning and mental health services.

Fridley Public Schools would like to thank Passion Church for its $5,000 donation to the Fridley Nutritional Services department. These funds will be used to pay off outstanding lunch balances for families whose children's lunch accounts have accrued debt.

Continuing their tradition of supporting education, the Fridley Lions Club donated Target gift cards to every elementary school teacher in the Fridley school district on August 29, 2019.

Superintendent Dr. Kim Hiel welcomed over 400 educators back for the 2019-20 school year at the annual Opening Workshop on August 26, 2019. The district recognized several employees including the Teachers of Excellence, 25 Years of Service recipients and Employee of the Year.
