All preschool classes meet in our secure preschool wing located in the Bartlett Community Center. Classes are offered for 3, 4 and 5 year old children. We also offer a Young 3’s (turning 3 after Sept. 1st) beginning in mid-October. See Young 3’s registration packet for age requirements and late starts. Children must be toilet independent by the first day of class.
The preschool staff are experienced and trained in early childhood education and recreational trends. We believe in the philosophy that children learn through play. Each child develops in their own way, and through our curriculum we will encourage growth at their individual pace. This curriculum includes developmental appropriate experiences in art, language, literature, math, science, athletics and health.
Registration for the 2022-23 school year is now open. Classes begin the week of September 6, 2022 through May 19, 2023. To register, a deposit of $175 plus your child’s birth certificate must be turned in with your completed preschool registration form. Forms are available in person at the Bartlett Community Center front desk. Online registration is not available for preschool.
