RPS Preschool

Skills we build in preschool serve us for a lifetime—positive relationships, language and literacy, numbers and thinking skills, and much more. RPS Preschool prepares young learners ages 3-5 for a future of school and life success. We use a play-based approach facilitated by high quality educators with respected curricula and assessments in a positive learning environment. Rochester Public Schools Preschool is a quality preschool program that respects the unique needs of each child. When children are prepared to succeed at kindergarten entrance, all of society benefits.
