In September 2014, Dexter Preschool moved to its present location and expanded our programs due to the Jenkins family's generous donation of the Generations Together facility. We offer full-day care for infants through kindergarten, and half-day preschool programs for 3-5 year olds. Our care ratio for infants and toddlers is 1:4 and 1:8 for 2 1/2 year-olds and older. We follow the HighScope Curriculum.
- Older Infants
- Preschool 3
- Preschool 4
- Half Day Preschool
We offer several half-day preschool program options. These run from September through May. Please see the items below for detailed information about enrolling your child at Jenkins Early Childhood Learning Center.
We enroll children in our year-round program on a rolling basis as space allows. Currently enrolled families and district employees receive first priority for available spots. We maintain a waiting list for interested families. Registration for half-day preschool opens in late February/early March for currently enrolled families, then for DCS staff, then for the general public.
