Preschool Programs

We are happy to offer two excellent preschool programs. We offer both developmental and community preschools for three and four year olds and for children who turn five after August 31.

Community Preschool

Community preschool is a tuition-based program consisting of five half days and five full days. You may sign up for five half days (mornings), five half days (afternoons), or five full days of preschool.

Developmental Preschool

Developmental preschool is a four-day inclusion program, either in the morning or in the afternoon, for children who are delayed in areas of development (such as speech/language, motor skills, social-emotional, cognitive, or adaptive skills). Students who qualify for early childhood special education will attend the community preschool and will receive specialized instruction/therapy services in the area(s) of a student's delayed development. Students do not attend preschool on Wednesday. There is no cost to families for this preschool.

Kindergarten Programs

McDowell Mountain offers free, full day kindergarten! Half day kindergarten is also available for morning instruction. Your child must be five years old before September 1. 

We will need the enrolling child's birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of residency upon registration.
