TRANSITIONAL PRESCHOOL

Transitional Preschool is the “stepping stone” to preschool.  This is a time when children are moving from parallel play into cooperative play.  In this group of late 2 and young 3 year olds we focus on social skills, self-help skills, and potty training.  The teachers help facilitate these developmental milestones while offering a variety of experiences to promote learning in the areas of science, math, reading, and writing. The daily schedule includes a balance of security and routine.  This combination allows the children to comfortably follow their individual interests in a predictable environment that is comforting to a young child.

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