Preschool @ The Center

Preschool @ the Center Program

We are excited to offer in person Preschool @ The Center programming this academic school year 2020-21. We will do our best to provide an enjoyable experience for your child but it is essential that there is mutual respect in regards to observing all program rules. We have been working hard on the re-creation of our programming and have come up with new classes to fit your preschoolers needs within following the Marin County Health guidelines and standards.

To ensure the safety and well being of all staff and children involved in Preschool @ The Center this year, it is critical that all children follow program rules listed in the Parent & Preschooler Expectations Sheet this school year without exception.
