Preschool teacher reading a book to studentsLee District RECenter is very fortunate to have the perfect facility to support a half day Preschool. All staff is fully licensed and the lead teachers have college degrees—better than that, they are all loving, fun, professionals who only have children's best interest at heart.

The primary focus of the Preschool is socialization and school readiness skills, accomplished through a creative, developmental approach. Safety is of utmost importance, as well as each child's individuality and sense of self.

The children have many hands on experiences including; art, science, circle time, centers, and music. The preschool schedules special appearances from local groups to enhance the program. We have an age appropriate playground, dance room, soft playroom, and a gym all at our fingertips for plenty of physical fitness—kiddie style!

Student Teacher Ratio: 2 1/2 and 3 year old classrooms is 14:2 and 4 year old classrooms is 16:2.

Orientation: There will be an orientation for parents in early September before school begins. An evening orientation will be held for the parents and a morning orientation for the children. In mid-August, you will receive a letter with your child's class assignment and details about the beginning of the school year.
