The Atlantic Community Schools, as part of the State-Wide Voluntary Preschool Program, offers free preschool for children who turn three and four years old on or before September 15.
The preschool is organized into various learning areas where we plan invitations to play. Our desire is that it is a space where the students feel comfortable enough to try new things, test out their ideas, and carry through with whatever their imaginations can conceive.
Free transportation is included for both our 3 and 4 year old programs!
