Play and Learn Preschool
Play and Learn Preschool is an inclusive program, located within West Elementary, which integrates children with special needs with their typically developing peers. Our program currently accepts children age three to five with transportation options, reduced tuition, and scholarship opportunities. Play and Learn Preschool programming provides a structured, supportive environment where children can participate in a variety of activities appropriate to their developmental level. There are a variety of opportunities each child will experience that promote communication and language, build social skills, develop large and fine motor skills, and increase their general knowledge. Children attending will also have access to pre-academics therefore, increasing their kindergarten readiness.
A virtual Play and Learn Preschool 2021-22 Informational Meeting via Google Meet will be held on Tuesday, April 6th at 6:30 pm. Join us to talk about preschool readiness, Play and Learn Preschool curriculum/assessment, our daily schedule, preschool tuition/scholarships, the home-to-school connection, and more.
