Fort Collins Preschool is a unique parent-involved preschool with families working together in a professionally guided preschool program. Under the guidance of the teacher/director, parents are trained and participate in the classroom approximately twice monthly. We offer programs for children ages two through pre-kindergarten.
2 Year Old Program
Fort Collins Preschool’s Two-Year-Old Parent Tot class offers a positive and reassuring environment where children are able to explore, experience, and interact with peers while having the security of their parent being close by.
3 Year Old Program
In many cases, this will be the child’s first experience with being away from home in a school setting. It is important that the experience be positive and growth-producing for children and parents alike. Our supportive environment will encourage social growth in your three year old child.
4 Year Old Program
Your four year old child’s natural desire to learn and increasing need to develop friendships will bloom and grow in our Pre-Kindergarten class. Our family-oriented group setting allows for many individual and group relationships that often involve parents and entire families as well as our own preschool children.
Pre-Kindergarten curriculum promotes early literacy with more emphasis on concepts in print, phonemic awareness and letter recognition. There are increased opportunities to develop and enhance math skills.
We believe skills learned by participating in art and music transfer to communication skills, study skills and cognitive skills. An education in the arts helps children pass from school into the world of work and community.
Extended Day Classes
Fort Collins Preschool offers several extended day classes throughout the school year. Dates and times depend upon the school year, typically extended day classes are held on Mondays or Wednesdays from noon to 3 pm.
Field trips are one aspect of the preschool curriculum. They serve as a way for children to broaden their horizons from their immediate world into the community around them.
