Welcome to Shenandoah Early Childhood

Welcome to the Shenandoah Public Schools preschool program!  We are proud of our early childhood program in Shenandoah. We have an opportunity to provide an educational opportunity to the youngest Mustangs and Fillies.  

We believe in unit based learning, exploratory opportunities, and of utmost importance - social/emotional learning for all students.  This is achieved through viable curricula, extensive trainings, collaborative approaches, data-driven practices, and highly qualified/certified staff.

We welcome you to visit our preschool!  Check out the QuickLinks page to learn more (information, staff, standards, etc). Please call us to set up a time to visit.
