Launching Pad Preschool
To register for the 2020-21 school year, please click the 2020-21 box below. Children must be 3 years old by September 1, 2020 and manage toileting independently.
Launching Pad Preschool embraces a Reggio Emilia-inspired approach to education which encourages exploration, discovery and critical thinking. We use Creative Curriculum which is researched based and aligned with the Minnesota Early Childhood Indicators of Progress, Minnesota's Early Learning Standards.
Our program is founded on the belief that all children have great potential, are curious, and are interested in constructing their learning. Activities are exciting, creative, and developmentally appropriate. To encourage children's growth and learning, we focus on project-based and inquiry-based learning, and authentic art experiences.
Launching Pad Preschool offers half-day classes, 2, 3 or 5 days per week, and all-day classes, 2 or 3 days per week. Bus transportation within the district to and from school is an option, and tuition assistance is a possibility for those who qualify. Teachers are licensed and assistants are experienced working with young children.
We are located in the Rockford Elementary Arts Magnet School with K-4th grades, Early Childhood Special Education, and Galaxy Kids School Age Care.
