Lancaster Preschool has added kindergarten! Our half-day kindergarten program strives to achieve an appropriate balance between structure and student led activities while developing a strong foundation in basic skills and a love of learning. This small class setting is staffed with a certified teacher and a part-time assistant teacher. Our curriculum offers daily experiences and lessons designed to teach facets of literacy, early reading skills, early math concepts and exploration in science and social studies, along with fine motor skills. The goal is for our kindergarten students to be fully prepared to enter first grade by the end of the year. Student/teacher ratio: 6:1.
