Preschool Programs

The Galena ARC Preschool is an educational, socialization, and enrichment program. We prepare children for kindergarten by developing self-esteem, teach number and letter recognition, and respect for others. It is also a great opportunity to learn the social skills of sharing, listening, speaking, and group participation. We offer a nurturing environment for children to discover his or her interests in a curriculum of science, nature studies, creative art projects, music, field trips, and guest speakers.

 

Why we are unique:

  • Full building security system with front door buzz entry, cameras in the classroom, and key card access

  • State approved fenced in playgrounds

  • Use of dance room, gymnasium, and sports and recreation equipment

  • Stop-n-drop and pick-up options (so parking is not an issue)

  • Multi-age classroom; 3, 4, and 5 year olds

  • Mid-year developmental screenings

  • Vision and hearing screenings

  • Monthly field trips

  • Located at the hub of Galena's youth activities so you're kept up to date on sports, art, and specialty classes

  • Hot lunch program

  • "Critter Camp" child care options during most school breaks and holidays
