About the Provider

Description: Our goal at Chestnut Memorial Preschool is to provide each student with an excellent foundation for learning.

Each child is a unique individual, and so is each person who chooses to teach young children. Our teachers are nurturing and they offer warmth and affection. The teachers interact with each child in a way that encourages maximum learning growth for each student.

At Chestnut, the children learn while having fun with a curriculum of many and varied learning experiences. While the children are learning skills, they are also developing a belief in themselves, respect for others, good work habits and an eagerness to learn.

Chestnut Memorial Preschool also offers Create, Move, Play; which, is an after school extended care for children who attend the preschool. Create, Move, and Play is available Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 12:30 - 3:45p.m., when school is in session. It is available for children enrolled in any of our morning preschool programs, including those programs only offered on Tuesday and Thursday.

The Chestnut Memorial Preschool "family" consists of a most cooperative and supportive school board and a quality teaching staff. This professional group of individuals is responsible for what we believe is a superb program offered at Chestnut Memorial Preschool.
