Philosophy
Each child is a unique person with his or her own strengths and weaknesses. Our aim is to meet the children's individual needs in a clean, safe nurturing environment.  The classroom activities are designed to help each child grow physically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally at his or her own pace.

The Classroom Experience
Children will experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities during the day. Among these are activities that promote fine and gross motor skills, art, music, dramatic play, and block play. Academic areas include math, science, language arts, and social studies.

Because preschoolers feel more secure when they know what they will do during the day, we follow a daily schedule.  Activities are planned to compliment the unit that the children are learning about and to achieve a balance between active and quiet play.

Enrollment
The classes are open to all residents of the Southern Regional district as well as the sending districts.  Children must be three years old by October 1 of the current school year and not yet enrolled in kindergarten.  Children must also be toilet trained.  There will be a non-refundable $50 registration fee which will be used for classroom supplies and scholarships for our students pursuing a career related to Family and Consumer Sciences.  This fee will be collected at orientation in August.

Interested parents may enroll their children by completing the online form.  To avoid having your child on a waiting list, please register early.
