Nonprofit of the week: The Kremmling Preschool
May 19, 2014
The Kremmling Preschool was organized in 1973 by a group of concerned parents wishing to establish a community service giving quality preschool care. The school provides early education for three and four-year-old children. The Kremmling Preschool is nationally accredited through NAEYC, which is quite an honor for a small rural community. There are 50 children enrolled this year with five employees. Today's preschool is yesterday's kindergarten. So much is expected these days beginning in kindergarten, it is essential to expose the children to a classroom and the social setting of school to begin the foundation on which they will build on in years to come in school. We do, however, believe much of this can be obtained through play. Staff help guide children through the steps of problem solving, vocabulary building, cause and effect as well as academics such as colors, shapes, numbers, recognizing their name, writing their name, cutting and gluing.
