Our preschool program started it all at Old Mill Center. Over 45 years later, we are proud to still provide high-quality early education to families. This pioneering program has educated children with special needs alongside typically developing children. It has become widely accepted as a best practice for early education.
What is the Old Mill Center Community Preschool?
Our goal is to serve the educational, physical, and social/affective needs of children ages 3-6. Our preschool serves those with special needs alongside their typically developing peers.
We believe that children need to be viewed as whole individuals. By “whole” we mean that a child’s total needs should be considered. What affects one aspect of the child’s development will also affect other aspects. We provide instruction to help equally develop cognitive, language and social skills. Our teachers also support fine and gross motor skills development.
