Delano Public Schools Preschool

Welcome to DPS Preschool! We have transformed to fit the needs of our growing community. DPS Preschool includes your child's preschool program with wrap around care options available, including an extended day program for the year before Kindergarten.

Our learning themes are planned around The Creative Curriculum. Assessments are embedded using Teaching Strategies Gold. Both of these align to Minnesota and Delano standards, preparing your child for Kindergarten.

Children age 33 months up to Kindergarten enrollment. Child must be completely toilet trained.

Registration for 2020 School Year

Dear Parents,

You are welcome to submit a registration request for DPS Preschool and / or Tiger Kids Club. At this time, we are evaluating our capacity for the three scenarios for the upcoming school year, per state requirements. As a result, we will not be able to review your registration until we are able to determine if we have room for additional children under each scenario. We appreciate your patience while we work through these challenging logistics. 
 HALF DAY (AM or PM) PRESCHOOL:  This is our structure learning time. During this time, children will participate in developmentally appropriate curriculum, play, and activities.

 EXTENDED DAY PRESCHOOL (only available to children the year before Kindergarten):  This is an extension option of the half day preschool program, including lunch, recess, enrichment activities related to our current learning themes, and time for free choice play and exploration.
