The Preschool Program was established to enhance the child development courses in the Family & Consumer Science curriculum at the high school.
This program serves as a child study laboratory school and provides high school students the opportunity to observe and apply what they are learning in theory.
A variety of activities will provide learning experiences that will encourage physical, emotional, intellectual, and social development. Activities will include arts & crafts, stories, games, exercises, music, songs, learning activities in math, letters, and science, and free play. Learning will be encouraged through play and developmentally appropriate activities.
Mrs. April Dull is the supervisor of the Pine-Richland HighSchool Preschool Program. She is a certified teacher with a Bachelor of Science degree from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. High school students enrolled in the preschool class will be working with your child. They must be a sophomore or older and be enrolled in the Child Development/PreschoolEducation Program. Under the direction of the teacher, these students will plan and implement the learning activities.
