In-school preschool programs with Children, Inc. increase learning time for half day preschoolers to a full day of preschool education, and are open beyond the regular preschool day to accommodate working parents.

Each of our centers offer full and half day programs, and enrollment is open to 3, 4 and 5 year old children who are potty trained and can be successful in a group setting with a teacher to student ratio of 1:10. Priority enrollment is given to children enrolled in each district’s preschool program.  Our programs are also open to district employees.
