Virtual Tiger Cubs Preschool Overview
Starting with the 2021-22 school year, West Des Moines Community Schools is excited to offer a virtual option for Tiger Cubs Preschool. The purpose of virtual preschool is to offer further flexibility with a half-day program, especially regarding transportation and child care. Students will still be able to build meaningful relationships with their classmates and teachers, while also developing the skills in the Iowa Early Learning Standards.
A virtual Tiger Cubs Preschool option may be available in 2022-23 based on interest from families. Families can mark their interest in the Infinite Campus online enrollment form.
Virtual Preschool Schedule Components

Effective teaching and learning requires a collaborative effort between students, parents/guardians, and school staff. Below are some of the key responsibilities each team member should demonstrate while engaging in remote learning.
