We offer an outstanding program for children who are 3 years old by September 1.
The curriculum at Columbus Preschool is designed to be developmentally appropriate for 3- and 4-year-olds and is built around units or themes. These provide the framework for art, language, literature, music, science and math activities. The program of activities implemented will be designed to meet each child’s individual needs to encourage growth both socially and intellectually.
Classes meet on Tuesday/Thursday from 8:10 to 10:30 a.m. Once this class fills to 15 students, we may consider adding another class option. A snack is served every day and is provided by parents on a rotating basis.
At Columbus Preschool, we understand that this might be the first time many children will spend a portion of their day away from parents or trusted caregivers. That is why we strive to make the transition as easy as possible by employing compassionate, loving teachers. Mrs. Hoffman and Mrs. Kauth will work hard to ease your child into a school routine while assuring them that you will come back!
Registration takes place in late winter or early spring, and is on a first come, first served basis. If you would like your child to be placed on a waiting list, please contact us. This doesn't guarantee your child's spot, but it does guarantee that you will receive registration materials and information. Children who attend Columbus Preschool must be toilet trained.
The fee for 3-year-old preschool can be paid one of 3 ways: $750 per year, $375 per semester or $83 monthly. A $75 registration fee is due upon registration.
