Our Preschool Programs
As a readiness program and licensed child care center, we strive to provide an array of stimulating opportunities within our curriculum that meet the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) national standards of quality and allow for ALL students to be successful.
As part of our commitment to excellence and providing rewarding experiences to youth in our community all COMO staff adhere to the ideals and principles of NAEYC’s Code of Conduct. These core values are fundamental to overall COMO philosophies.
We understand that different families have different schedules and needs. That's why we offer a variety of scheduling options!
This year we were ranked third best preschool in The Day's Best of Readers' Choice Awards, and last year second best--being first in the Greater Mystic/ Stonington area.
TRADITIONAL PRESCHOOL PROGRAM
The Doris Muller Preschool offers the options of a two, three, or five-day schedule for all preschool students ages three to five years old.
Students meet from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on those days for a core preschool program. Students may attend school either Tuesday and Thursday; Monday, Wednesday, Friday; or all 5 days.
