We welcome every learner! The StormHawks Preschool program offers a high-quality early learning opportunity using the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress (ECIPS), Minnesota’s early learning standards. Preschool classrooms use Creative Curriculum, a researched-based curriculum that features exploration, inquiry and discovery to guide learning. Classrooms use Empower, Eastern Carver County Schools’ learning management program, and Teaching Strategies Gold standards. We provide a personalized learning experience for every child.

All preschool classrooms:

  • Are developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote children’s progress in all developmental areas. Classrooms feature Play, Exploration, and Personalized Learning.
  • Employ teachers who are committed to creating an environment which will prepare children for kindergarten in district schools. 
  • Partner with Eastern Carver County Early Childhood Special Education.
  • Are four-star Parent Aware rated, promoting high-quality education opportunities for our youngest learners.
