When families come to Parkside Community Preschool, they are usually looking for a nurturing environment that reflects their home. Our priority is to meet the needs of children and families in our community. We want to make you a part of our Parkside family and want to be an extension of your home and care for your child with patience and warmth, while we provide opportunities for learning and playing.
We provide a rich learning environment with opportunities centered around social and emotional growth through the arts, science, math, and literacy. Parkside's environment and routines are designed for the hands-on, self-directed learning style most suited to young children. Our warm and caring staff model and facilitate conflict resolution with all children.
The uniqueness of the program comes from the families and staff of our community. We encourage and value your participation and feedback. Parkside has no religious affiliation, and is incorporated as a private, non-profit, tax-exempt school.
Please call to arrange a tour. We are excited to show you around our school!
At Parkside, we focus on providing high quality care to all families. We offer a sliding tuition scale based on family size and income.
Parkside follows herd immunity (also called herd effect, community immunity, population immunity, or social immunity), which is a form of indirect protection from infectious disease that occurs when a large percentage of a population has become immune to an infection, whether through previous infections or vaccination, thereby providing a measure of protection for individuals who are not immune.
