Parent Participation Preschool

Preschool

Parent Participation Preschool is a program designed for parents to help their child(ren) transition from home to school while working with them side-by-side. Our dedicated teachers provide a stimulating, safe, and nurturing environment helping give children a positive beginning to their education. Children must turn three years old by the end of December to be considered for the current school year. There are three different phases to our Parent Participation Preschool.

 

A $25.00 registration fee is required for first time registration for all classes.
