Our Program

The Highland Pre-School program is designed to help foster the growth of the whole child — physically, socially, emotionally, creatively and cognitively. The program includes dramatic play, music, movement, games, craft activities, art and stories, as well as field trips and other special activities.

Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere with varied creative play materials, and a program that will help your child develop a curiosity for the world around him/her and a love for learning!

To maximize child/teacher interaction, we like to maintain a pupil/teacher ratio of 8:1 with the three-year-olds, and 9:1 or 10:1 with the four and five year olds.

Our school mascot is the bear so consequently each class has a “beary” special name!

The session you enroll your child in should reflect his/her age on October 15th of that year. A child must be 3 by October 15th to be eligible for the 3-4 year old programs that school year and 4 by that date to be eligible for the 4-5 year old programs. All children are expected to be toilet trained by the start of school.

Extended Day Option: Monday through Friday, children attending morning Pre-School may bring their own lunch and be a “Lunch Buddy”, then participate in our afternoon program from 12:30-2:30.

Early Drop-Off/Late Pick-Up Option (starting in Sept. 2017): Monday through Friday, we offer an early drop-off and late pick-up option. On Tuesday and Thursday, early drop-off is from 8:15-9:00 and on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, early drop off is from 8:00 to 8:45. Late pick-up on all days is from 2:30-3:15.
