What is OleMiss PreSchool?

Outdoor Classroom at OleMiss PreSchoolOleMiss PreSchool is a developmental program for children ages 3-5 that focuses on the importance of play and engagement. We allow children to learn through their own curiosity and document their achievements through meaningful observations and assessments. We believe in children's ability to work through issues with conflict resolution and problem-solving techniques. Our curriculum includes a variety of concepts and themes that meet all of the requirements of Indiana's Early Learning Development Framework. Our program provides monthly family activities as an opportunity to promote the importance of family engagement as well as a chance to provide parent education materials and resources. A unique quality of our preschool is that we have an outdoor classroom that children can explore and experience nature in a safe environment. We would like to expand our program to reach more children in our community. We truly believe all children deserve to have the opportunity for preschool.

Vision & Core Values

Our mission is to provide a safe place to take advantage of the teachable moments that happen day-to-day by fostering the intellectual, creative, social, emotional, and physical growth and development of our students.

 

OleMiss PreSchool will foster a caring, cooperative, and culturally diverse school environment that promotes trustworthiness in positive and respectful relationships. We encurage family participation and education to continue the success of the child into adulthood.

  • We offer innovative, creative, and efficient programs to foster an environment that leads to achieving greater success.
  • We believe that a stable, safe, healthy, comfortable, and culturally relevant
