Schedule:
We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about our programs. Educare is a full day, fully inclusive preschool program. Our classrooms are conveniently located on the first floor of the Dole Building and are fully licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Educare follows a daily schedule which includes activities such as meals (breakfast, lunch and snack), outdoor and movement times, nap/rest times, circle times, free-choice activities, and a wide variety of developmentally appropriate learning experiences designed to meet children's individual needs.

Curriculum:
Educare's teachers and staff work to create an atmosphere in which children are eager to learn. Goals and objectives are identified for each child and activities planned that promote gains in all developmental areas. The curriculum provides children with opportunities to work on large movement, small movement, social-emotional, language, literacy, science, art, technology, concept formation, and self-help skills. Children learn to express their curiosity, problem-solve, practice, and work cooperatively with others through activities based on play and hands-on involvement.
