Preschool Programs &
Transitional Kindergarten

Our goal at Carol Matheys Center for Children and Families is to help all children prepare for Kindergarten.

Children are given the opportunity to learn through creative play, music, crafts, science, math, computers and literacy. We teach children respect and responsibility and encourage independence.

All curriculum is developed to be fun and age appropriate. It is designed to meet the Minnesota Department of Education Early Education Standards.

We provide nutritionally balanced meals and snacks and we participate in the Minnesota Child & Adult Food Program.
