    A Solid Foundation for Success!
    We are committed to the social and academic success of your child. District 622 Preschool offers a high ­quality preschool program in eight locations throughout the school district. Four year-olds can attend morning or afternoon preschool classes five days a week. Families with three year-olds may choose two or three mornings per week.  
    Learning is a social process involving play, exploration, and interaction. All children are welcomed and celebrated for who they are. Each child has unique strengths that are built upon daily. Children thrive in a safe and nurturing environment through respect and consistent rituals and routines. Your child will learn skills needed for kindergarten such as sharing, listening, and cooperation, and develop the confidence to succeed in school. Through hands-on experiences your child will develop academic skills in literacy, math, science and understanding the world around us. Learn more about us.

    Why Choose District 622 Preschool

    • For the last 3 years, District 622 was fortunate to receive Voluntary PreK funding from the State of Minnesota which allowed 4 year-olds to attend preschool for free. At this time we know that Richardson and Webster Elementary will be free for 4 year-olds who live within those school attendance areas. Families who live in other school attendance areas are encouraged to register for preschool. A sliding fee scale is available to those who qualify.
