Who can attend?  Children must be at least 3 years old and they may attend until they start Kindergarten.  All children must be potty trained and be current on all immunizations.


General Description:  We have a play school program which is run by the high school students. These students are enrolled in either Developmental Psychology of Children I or Developmental Psychology of Children II.  High school students learn about child development and preschool curriculum, while they run the on-site preschool. There are approximately 32 high school students enrolled in each class, and we have approximately 25 preschoolers. The class is taught and supervised by one credentialed teacher and one adult paraprofessional.


Playschool Curriculum:  This is not an academic preschool, however, our children are Kindergarten ready, as per district requirements. The preschoolers are divided into age groups. The high school students plan and implement age appropriate activities including art, science, math and language.  There is also inside and outside free play, and both circle and story time.  Each age group focuses on developmentally appropriate activities and Kindergarten readiness skills. Our preschoolers enter Kindergarten confident and ready to learn.
