Centennial Preschool Information

 

This full day, year-before-kindergarten program is currently held at all five of the elementary school locations (Blue Heron, Centennial, Centerville, Golden Lake,  and Rice Lake). KC Preschool is designed to help children prepare to enter kindergarten with the skills and behaviors necessary to be successful. Children who are four years old before September 1 of the current school year and are toilet trained are eligible to enroll.

 

Children work on listening, personal and social development, language and literacy, thinking and math skills through guided play, group time, and social interaction. Activities include language arts, math, science, art, large muscle (gym/outside), dramatic play, blocks, and music.

Children will need to purchase a lunch or bring a lunch from home.
