The Creative Preschool

Now accepting applications for 2018-19!

About the Preschool:
The Creative Preschool at Tolland High School is an integral part of the child education program and is designed to provide high school students with practical, hands-on experiences working directly with young children.  The interactions between the high school students and the preschoolers provide unique opportunities for the older students to apply what they have learned and for the younger students to learn skills that will enhance their development.  It’s a win-win for everyone!

We take pride in our program and maintaining a healthy balance between free-play and structure to meet the developmental needs of preschoolers.  The children enrolled in our program are engaged in a variety of age-appropriate activities designed to enhance their physical, intellectual, emotional and social, and moral development.  Examples of these activities include:  daily story time, music and movement, art, crafts, and outdoor play.  In addition, early literacy, mathematics, science and nature activities are incorporated into the daily activities.  All of these experiences occur under the care and supervision of very eager high school students, many of whom are choosing childhood education as a future career.

The Creative Preschool is open to children ages 3 - 5 and is not limited to Tolland residents.  Families from surrounding towns are welcome!  All children attending our program must be fully potty trained (no diapers or Pull-ups).  Children that are at least 34 months old by the start of the semester may be considered for enrollment, depending upon space availability and developmental readiness.
