Our class puppet, Scruffy, lives in the classroom and visits everyday!

The Pre-k class  strives to prepare each student for success in school and beyond! While this is not a licensed preschool, input from Jackson Elementary kindergarten teachers has helped guide our objectives. Reading readiness is at the heart of our learning goals! We progress through the alphabet multiple times, and enjoy playful practice with syllables, rhyming, beginning sounds and more. Puppets, songs, and games make discoveries fun!


This program follows Elco's calendar, so families in the district have their children on the same schedule. But we enroll students from many districts, as well as homeschoolers.

What makes PALS unique?

  • in-home setting

  • small class size

  • individual attention

  • Christian emphasis

  • input from local teachers

  • daily activity report

  • play- and song-based learning!

PLEASE NOTE: Even though our classes are small, we are NOT trained or equipped to serve students with special needs of any kind. Nor are we able to enroll children who are disrespectful, disobedient or disruptive. Out of respect for the remaining students, such children are removed from class the very first day.  

We DO serve students who enjoy playtime, discovery, and exploration under the guidance of a caring grown up.... and if this describes your child, we'd love to have them join us!
