At the Monson Public School Preschool Program, it is our mission to create a positive, safe environment where all children feel comfortable and are inspired to become lifelong learners. We provide activities that guide students toward successful levels of ability in fine motor, gross motor, social behavioral, and language development.
The Preschool Program at the Early Childhood Center is designed for children between the ages of three and five. Each integrated session and child development class has a maximum of 15 children.
