Our PreK goal at Carol Matheys Center for Children and Families is to help all children prepare for Kindergarten. Children are given the opportunity to learn through creative play, music, crafts, science, math, computers and literacy. We teach children respect, responsibility and encourage independence. All curriculum is developed to be fun and age appropriate, and it is designed to meet the Minnesota Department of Education Early Education Standards.
We provide nutritionally balanced meals and snacks, and we participate in the Minnesota Child & Adult Food Program. Children eat in a Family Style environment. This promotes independence skills in a home like setting.
Children must be toilet trained to attend school programs.
