KidStuff Preschool

Kidstuff Preschool is a fun, developmental preschool available to all children ages 3-5. The preschool offers half-day classes from 2 to 4 days per week. The classrooms, located in Washington and Loogootee, are conducted by experienced licensed teachers with a maximum of 5 to 1 child to staff ratio.

At KidStuff Preschool, we know that each child is unique and we base our teaching on the understanding that
young children learn through play. Our teacher developed curriculum gives attention to language, movement, interacting with others, self-help and early learning.

Each child receives individual time as well as group socialization opportunities through a healthy balance of structured learning activities and fun learning opportunities. KidStuff Preschool provides positive interactions with peers; and fun, enriching activities to broaden their experiences and add fun and interest to their lives. The end goal is to promote self-esteem, quality of life and successful skills in their present and future lives.

To ensure that all children receive a high quality, positive early educational experience, our qualified KidStuff staff receive on-going training and work closely with the Daviess-Martin Special Education Cooperative and other professionals to support those children with special needs.

We are here to serve your child’s developmental needs and to assist you in helping your child get off to a great start!
