                               Early Childhood Education and Care

Lewiston Altura Mini Cardinals       Registration information and Forms will be available by March 8th

The Lewiston -Altura Early Childhood program provides experiences in  an educational environment with routines, schedules, and activities following  Creative Curriculum guiding principles.  This is not a strict school based setting, but a play inspired, child led learning setting that promotes independence, confidence,  growth, and fun! 
   We understand that for many children, this is the first time in a classroom or away from familiar caregivers and are here to support families and their children in this transition for a positive school experience.  Licensed teachers provide daily activities to give the children opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, and physically while developing a life long desire to learn.

We are now a combined Early Childhood Education and Cardinal Care program that continues to offer 4-Star Parent Aware rated preschool programming with an extended day option for children between the ages 33 months and 5 years. Quality, seamless, developmentally appropriate education and care is available from 6 am to 5:30pm. 

The preschool schedule follows the district calendar for holidays and weather related closings. Full day programming may be offered on no school days and is included in the monthly fee.
