Early Childhood Centers

Francis Howell has an award winning preschool program available for families in our community that provides excellent social and pre-academic experiences for your children.  Francis Howell Preschool is committed to offering children experiences that stimulate a child’s intellectual, physical, social and emotional learning to ensure that all children reach their full potential. This programming is housed in each of three Early Childhood Family Education Centers and two of our elementary sites.

We offer both half-day preschool and full day programming. A variety of inclusionary settings are available that are a combination of multi-age or age-specific classrooms. Our preschool curriculum is aligned with the district Kindergarten curriculum in order to assure students are exposed to foundational skills needed for success in kindergarten. Curriculums used are the pre-k versions of:

  • Growing with Math
  • Second Step-social emotional curriculum
  • Handwriting without Tears curriculum
  • District-written Literacy Curriculum
EC Meadows Parkway

The curriculum is designed to help children meet goals through their learning experiences. This is accomplished through a mixture of play, large group and small group activities, learning centers and daily routines.

All of our teachers are certified in Early Childhood and/or Early Childhood Special Education. Parents and guardians are encouraged to participate in the life of the classroom by being a parent volunteer following the completion of the District background check.
