North Park Preschool -
There are currently eight preschool classrooms at North Park. We provide a morning session and afternoon session which is determined primarily by where students are transported to and from school. We are fortunate to have two preschool classrooms designated by the Kentucky Department of Education as Classrooms of Excellence, and two others in the process of applying.
We provide a rich, nurturing environment full of developmentally appropriate learning activities.
