Emerson Preschool is a licensed, fee-based preschool that provides year-round comprehensive developmentally appropriate program for young children. Emerson is currently enrolling children ages 2 to 5.

The main goals of the program are:

  • to help children feel good about themselves and others
  • to become self-motivated learners
  • to gain firm positive attitudes for future learning

Classes provide an environment that encourages children to express themselves through language, art, movement, music, dramatic play, and social interaction.  There is also a strong emphasis on literacy skills for 3-5 year olds.

Emerson has a well-qualified administrative and instructional staff.  The Principal, Dr. Joan Butler, has more than 30 years in administration of early childhood programs as an early childhood teacher, coordinator, and principal.
