"The Place to Dream, Believe and Achieve"

Welcome to the Bison Community!

We are excited to have you join our preschool community. The Bison Preschool offers educational programs intentionally designed for our youngest learners ages 2.5 to Kindergarten entrance.

Bison Preschool students will have opportunities to learn through play, build friend- ships with peers, engage in music and movement, outdoor play, early academic activities, art, snack, and collaborative large and small group routines. Our preschool classrooms are taught by licensed Early Childhood teachers. Children are supported by teaching teams that include general education and special education professionals. We are an inclusive preschool welcoming all children. Bison Preschool uses research based tools designed specially for early childhood students, including The Creative Curriculum which guides our learning, Teaching Strategies Gold-an authentic observation based assessment to measure a child’s progress, and the Pyramid Model, a program wide initiative to build a child’s social-emotional wellbeing and development.
