Our Philosophy
The goal of the Cary Park District Preschool is to create a positive, sensitive and responsive environment to help children feel valued and grow with each learning experience. Through developmentally appropriate activities, we foster physical, emotional, social and cognitive growth while promoting a lifetime love for learning.


Our Teachers

Cary Park District’s nurturing and experienced teachers provide a safe, caring and consistent environment for young children. Our teachers are qualified in early childhood development and attend conferences, seminars and workshops to keep current with issues in early childhood education, health and safety.


Our Program Goals

  • Promote a child’s sense of individual worth and belonging as a part of a group and community.
  • Provide opportunities to learn and grow through exploration and play.
  • Explore small group activities for specific skills.
  • Provide opportunities to experiment and problem solve.
  • Create a language rich environment through circle time, reading, books and conversation.
  • Promote awareness of the larger community with guest speakers such as firefighters, dentists, and more.
  • Establish communication between parents through progress reports, conferences, daily information board and conversations.
  • Follow the guidelines set by Cary Community Consolidated School District 26 for kindergarten readiness skills.
