Shared Vision Preschool

Our preschool program is for children turning 3 or 4 on or before September 15, 2017.

The program consists of a 4 day week offering a 3 hour session in the AM or a 3 hour session in the PM.   Three and four year olds are combined in the same classroom.

We receive Shared Vision funding which allows us to offer tuition free preschool for a limited number of three and four year olds that qualify based on income.
