Preschool Program

Our Preschool programs serve children ages 32 months to Kindergarten.  We currently have 6 preschool classrooms.

We are licensed to serve 120 pre-school aged children.

The preschool program continues the child's development of social / emotional development, language development, cognitive, and physical skills through an environment introducing freedom within limits. This environment fosters an inner discipline gained from making choices, thereby developing independence, self-motivation, and increased creativity.

We serve breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. The children have rest period from 1-3 pm .

We use The Doors curriculum which is part of Project Early Kindergarten.  Project Early Kindergarten aligns with the St. Paul Public Schools early Kindergarten programs.
