Program Information

Children develop at their own pace. This is why the Town of Aurora Preschool programs begin at the age of 6 months and progress gradually to 5 years old. All programs currently require parent or guardian participation or a parent or guardian to remain on-site for the duration of the program.

Our goal is to provide safe and stimulating programs for all preschoolers. Fulfilling your child's need to laugh, play and to discover is our motivation. We aim to provide you and your child with the best quality and most positive experience possible during these formative and developmental years.

Program Instructors

We also work with several experienced, professional service agreement contractors who are specialists in their respective fields.
