Delano Public Schools Preschool


Welcome future Tigersl! 

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.
 HALF DAY (AM) & (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.
