Program Description

The purpose of Lyons Elementary Preschool is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to develop and grow socially, physically and emotionally. Through the classroom experience, children will develop independence from the family group and a new awareness of the world around them. Your child will participate in many activities developed to enrich and enhance both small and large motor skills and basic readiness concepts (i.e. colors, numbers, counting, and shapes). Our curriculum is quite flexible and designed to stimulate each child to develop a positive self image through positive experiences and encouragement. With these experiences, we believe we will enable your child to become a lifelong learner and have a smooth entry to kindergarten.

Cost: Scaled

Hours: 8:05am-2:50pm

Enrollment Process: Generally, starting on December 1, families will need to register online. About January 15, the Lyons Elementary school office team will begin contacting families to indicate their enrollment status, or notify families of their place on the waiting list. At that point families will need to complete additional enrollment paperwork and put down a non refundable deposit of $65.  Questions or support can be directed to the Lyons Elementary School front office team.

    • Child resides in the school attendance area.
    • Family has a sibling at the school.
