Discovery Preschool: A School Readiness Program

Discovery Preschool: A School Readiness Program 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. We offer both 3K and 4K inclusive classrooms. Serving children ages 3 and 4 as of September 1 of the respective year of service.

We work every day to ensure a well rounded and developmentally appropriate pre-Kindergarten 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.

At Discovery Preschool, we wholeheartedly believe that a child’s “work” is PLAY! We use a variety of curricular frameworks, including Creative Curriculum, Second Step Social Emotional Curriculum, and Handwriting Without Tears to establish a rich environment for the children to play in and therefore learn! 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.
