Kinder Prep


Offering half day preschool to 4-5 year olds, with the option of full day care.


Children learn through experience and discovery. Our goal in the J.O. Combs Kinder Prep program is to prepare children to enter kindergarten with a healthy self-concept and a positive attitude toward school and learning. Children who will turn four by December 31 of that school year are eligible for this class. The Kindergarten Prep program is exciting and unique in many ways. Your child will learn in a positive, child-oriented program with a hands-on active approach toward learning. Kinder Prep is taught by a certified teacher.


These classrooms are licensed by the Department of Health Services and approved by the Department of Economic Security. We are located at Ranch Elementary School at 43521 N. Kenworthy Avenue and Ellsworth Elementary School at 38454 N. Carolina Ave.
