The East Bernstadt Preschool program is housed in our Elementary School building. We believe children learn best through play. The East Bernstadt School Preschool program provides children opportunities to make discoveries, find talents, develop interests, and build friendships. Under the guidance of highly qualified certified teachers, we develop children's academic and social skills necessary for trust, safety, and respect.

Activities based on the Kentucky Early Learning Standards offer a fun yet structured setting to help students be kindergarten-ready.  Our program includes well-defined learning centers, individual and group instruction, and real-life experiences for children of diverse backgrounds and learning styles. The students enjoy a large, well-equipped classroom, nutritious meals, an outdoor playground, and a large indoor space for gross motor play.
