*Please remember, Early Childhood Screening is a requirement for entry into all of our preschools. Make an appointment today. If your child has a summer birthday and will not yet be three before the end of this school year, there will be opportunities to screen just prior to the first day of preschool. Please call 651.351.4022 with any questions. 
Our early childhood preschool program brings preschool age children together with the goal of offering engaging, nurturing and creative learning opportunities in a safe and enriched classroom. Many of our preschool classes are integrated and in all classes, children explore, create and learn.
In our Four Star Parent Aware Rated preschool program, licensed teachers provide experiences that develop the skills children need to be successful in school. Our language arts and math lessons are aligned with the district's kindergarten curriculum so our preschoolers will be well prepared. 
Parent involvement is a key element of children's success in school and is highly recommended. Preschool parents choose from a variety of parent involvement options offered by our licensed parent educators throughout the school year.
