Rush City Early Childhood

casey.jpg Rush City Early Childhood is a busy and exciting place to be! Preschool classes are offered either 2 or 3 days per week for students ages 3 - 5 years of age. Our classes offer a mix of academic and social experiences for all children. Most classes, additionally, receive support from a highly trained MN Reading Corps member. All early childhood classrooms have SMARTboards and document cameras. Early Childhood has a small set of iPads for student use as well as a set of SMART Response interactive clickers, that allow students to answer questions at the touch of a button. Parent participation is encouraged, as parents are invited to attend preschool with their child 2 times per year. Preschool follows the general K-12 school calendar with minor exceptions.
