Shoreline Preschool

Shoreline Preschool is committed to giving your child a positive and successful first school experience. In keeping with our dedication to an excellent early learning experience, we provide a high level of personal attention to each child by keeping our class sizes and class ratios lower than mandated by state licensing. While we do not follow a specific published curriculum, Shoreline Preschool has spent many years developing a curriculum that balances academic learning with play-based processes. Our programs provide a nurturing environment that develops the unique potential of each child by fostering social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth with an emphasis on Christian beliefs and values.

Shoreline Preschool FAQs

Preschools are governed by different requirements than K-12 education and we will only close if all preschools/daycares are mandated to close by the state or county.

Shoreline Preschool has planned extensive learning packets that will be distributed to each family in the event of a mandated closure. These weekly packets will include: links to 5 online stories, 2 Flipgrid videos focused on that week’s learning concepts, 3 Grab and Go arts/crafts activities, a bible story related to the monthly theme as well as class prayers, 3 STEM activities, links to classroom songs, one cooking project or snack idea for the week, and 5 age-appropriate worksheets. Teachers will also provide support and teleconferencing with families if they need any assistance. If the mandated closure extends beyond 4 weeks parents will be given the option to continue to receive the weekly learning packets for a reduced tuition cost.
