Preschool Classes

Ready Set Grow Preschool

Ready Set Grow is a 9 month/30 week preschool experience for children aged 3 - 5 years to nurture social and skill development.    Activities include storytelling, fingerplays, music, art, large muscle play and free choice.  Classes are taught by Minnesota State Licensed Teachers with an assistant in each classroom.   ECSE staff may be part of the teaching team.  Teachers plan activities based on the Creative Curriculum, Second Step, and assess children using the Teaching Strategies Gold system.  This core academic curriculum prepares students in their transition to Kindergarten at the Buffalo Hanover Montrose Schools.  These classes are integrated and serve children of all abilities and challenges.  We believe that "parents are the child's first and most important teachers" and, therefore, Parent Involvement is required in our unique program.

Welcoming Circle Time
