Wilson Preschool

At Wilson Preschool…We believe parents are their child’s first and foremost teacher. We believe a partnership between parents and teachers creates a supportive learning environment for families.

At Wilson Preschool…We offer a hands-on, developmentally-appropriate preschool curriculum based on the High Scope model in which children learn through play and grow at their own pace.

At Wilson Preschool…We believe a strong preschool foundation with parent engagement leads to increased student achievement in K-12.

At Wilson Preschool…We have a professional, caring staff with strong backgrounds in early childhood development. Our teachers are also credentialed parent educators.

By offering a quality parent education preschool, we are helping build stronger families and, ultimately, stronger communities.

Parent Responsibilities*

Part of what makes Wilson Preschool special is that parents actively participate in their child’s classroom. Parents work in the class one day per week (3 hours). Parents attend a 40-minute parent education discussion with the teacher and other parents during class time. Parent education curriculum provides tools for working with children in a school setting.

*Parents will not be able to work in the classroom during the 2020-21 school year. Parents will continue to participate in parent education in an online format.

Fall Term Information

Wilson Preschool will be starting the school year with online classes. Classes will meet three times a week for one hour each day. Online classes will include a circle time with movement, songs and stories as well as show-and-tell and hands-on activities. We will provide each student with activity kits to be used for each lesson. In addition to the class meetings for children, each class will meet online once a week for parent education.

We will move to in-person classes when once our state, county and district advise us that it is safe to do so. Once we move to in-person classes, parents will not be able to participate in the classroom due to Covid-19 protocols. 

We will only be offering our 3’s and 4’s classes this school year. We will not be able to offer our Saturday, 2’s or toddler classes this year.
