    Preschool serves as an introduction to the school experience. By exposing students to a comfortable and inspiring classroom environment, students are eager to continue to learn and grow in kindergarten and beyond. The Anoka-Hennepin School District provides high-quality preschool programming though the School Readiness Preschool program.
     
    Children gain important skills and experiences in:
     
    • Learning to follow routines and rules
    • Learning to get along with other children
    • Literacy, introductory reading and writing
    • Math and number sense, science, art and music

     

    The Community Education department is proud to offer preschool programs, which have given the Anoka-Hennepin School District the opportunity to connect with and support students before they enter kindergarten. 
     

    Why choose a preschool program through the school district?

    As a parent, you want to be sure that your child is ready for kindergarten after attending preschool. Licensed preschool teachers attend joint staff development sessions with teachers teaching students in kindergarten - grade three to closely align curriculum goals and academic progress. In addition, Anoka-Hennepin School District early learning and preschool programs use a common assessment tool to evaluate student learning, which is aligned with district-wide kindergarten-readiness benchmarks.
