Discovery Preschool: A School Readiness Program

Take a peek at all we have to offer...Discovery Preschool is brought to you by La Crescent-Hokah Community Education, a program of La Crescent-Hokah Public Schools and a proud partner of Semcac Head Start, an equal opportunity program. La Crescent-Hokah Early Childhood Discovery Preschool takes its name and purpose very seriously. We work every day to ensure a wellrounded and developmentally appropriate preKindergarten experience that lays the foundation for a successful K-12 experience and beyond. Our team of highly-trained and experienced staff ensure the delivery of a State approved and research-based curriculum that is carefully aligned with the Minnesota ECIPs (Early Childhood Indicators of Progress) and the State K-12 curricular standards; but more importantly, we put the needs and interests of each individual child at the center of every decision we make.

Discovery Preschool programming addresses all areas of your child’s development; social emotional, large and small motor, language, and cognitive. Discovery Preschool takes great pride in being able to offer preschool that truly prepares the whole student for Kindergarten. One of the greatest assets of Discovery Preschool is its location in La Crescent-Hokah Elementary. Attending preschool in the elementary building allows your student access to the entire facility including onsite surround care (Kids' Company), food service that includes options for breakfast and lunch, two gymnasiums, a full playground, the entire elementary library, as well as technology resources. In addition, staff and students are privileged to benefit from having the expertise of a licensed school nurse, educational psychologist, and specialist educators on site.
