Ready, Set, Grow

For children 4 years of age before September 1

All Day!   Five Days a Week!   Learning through Play, Every Day!

Children learn through play and each child is unique! Our program strives to meet each child’s strengths and needs while they learn in a hands on, play based, active learning environment. In this preschool class we will work to prepare students for a successful transition to Kindergarten. We focus on the whole child and their development. We will work on a variety of things including: social skills, literacy skills, number skills, motor skills and more! The HighScope Curriculum is used to provide children with developmentally appropriate play-based learning.

This class follows the K-12 calendar. Families may create a modified schedule of fewer than 5 days per week, please talk to Ms. Chas to discuss what would best fit your child and your family. Children attending class on a modified schedule will be required to pay the same fee.

Bus transportation is available to children living near established Willow River Area School Bus routes. Children do not need a sibling in order to ride the bus, however they must be able to follow the school bus safety expectations..

This program has a quarterly fee for an all day, play based preschool experience. Families that qualify for free/ reduced lunch will qualify for a decreased fee. Fee will be accepted in full or in 4 quarterly payments. Scholarships may be available. More information regarding fee is available upon request.

Children must be potty trained to attend.
