The Preschool Program is for children 3 years old who are potty trained up to 5 years of age. The program offers a choice of Full Day, Half Day (a.m. 4 hours or less), or 2 ½ Hour Preschool.

The Center has a developmentally appropriate, integrated curriculum. There are planned activities to meet the developmental needs and interests of the whole child (physical, social, cognitive, emotional, and creative expression).

Full day children have a nap/rest time. Each full day child has his/her own cot for resting.

A daily snack in the morning and afternoon is served. Full day children need to pack a balanced lunch.

The MUCCD Preschool is located in room #230 in Cambridge Hall and has a ratio of 1 adult to 9 children in the preschool classroom.
