Preschool is for 3-year old children who will turn four during the school year.  Our preschool program is rooted in the theory that children learn best through play, with ample opportunity for self-directed choices. When young children follow their independent interests, put their hands on something, are immersed in a concept and play out real-life experiences, deep learning occurs.  Woven through each child’s day is the opportunity for large and small group experiences, child and teacher directed learning activities, and indoor or outdoor gross motor. We believe this unique blend of opportunities provides the optimal environment for the development and growth of our preschoolers.

MCC is open daily from 7am to 6pm. The opening/closing room is located in the gym at the back of the school.
