Bloomington Early Learning Services preschool program is committed to preparing your child for success in kindergarten and beyond! 

Our licensed teachers set up classrooms to help children discover a love for learning while working on social/emotional skills to prepare them for lifelong learning. 

Our curriculum is based on the Minnesota Early Learning Indicators of Progress. These state standards define what we want preschool students to know and be able to do by the end of the preschool year. Learning standards and benchmarks are aligned with the district’s kindergarten standards and benchmarks.

Parent involvement and education sessions are held throughout the year. Parents come to school with their children to... 

  • participate in classroom learning activities together, 
  • meet other families, and
  • learn about parenting topics and readiness skills.

Three-year-olds are bursting with energy and enthusiasm for learning and making friends. It’s a time of physical, emotional and intellectual change. 

At 3, your child may be going to school for the first time. Our preschool program will provide a positive introduction to school. Opportunities to practice social skills and math, language, art and music activities will help build a foundation for school success. 

We offer Preschool for Three's for 2.5 hours per day three days per week (M-W-F) or 2 days per week (T-Th) at both Pond and Southwood centers.

Your child must be 3 years old by September 1, 2021
