We understand that a child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development is best nurtured among caring adults and peers within an environment that extends curiosity and enriches learning. Our program is child-centered while providing the structure needed for children to feel safe within predictable routines. We respect that each child is uniquely individual and eagerly watch for and celebrate learning milestones as a natural outcome of play and guided learning activities.
All of Brown County Schools preschool instructors earn Child Development Associate (CDA) certification. Our building principals serve as Preschool Directors and work together to assure a quality early learning experience is accessible to ALL children.
We want your child to enjoy coming to preschool! We use positive classroom practices as the foundation for building a joyful community of learners. Our teachers and support staff take every opportunity to honor creativity and wonder as primary means for cultivating self-confidence and self-expression. Conversation, observation and patient listening are the tools used by our entire Preschool team to develop the relationships children depend on as they work through challenges and share their accomplishments.
Students eligible for preschool under IDEA Part B (special education law) pay no tuition and round-trip transportation is provided. In addition to a preschool teacher they interact with a licensed special education staff.
Tuition is charged by the day with a minimum of 2 days per week recommended for each child. For further information regarding preschool tuition, contact your school’s Principal or the Brown County Schools district office at 812-988-6601.
Enrollment is rolling, so children are welcome to enroll and attend on or after their third birthday at any time during the school year. Each of our three elementary schools are Paths to Quality Level 3 programs and are home to two preschool classrooms staffed with a 1/10 ratio.
"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
