The MCSD Preschool Program is guided by the Iowa Quality Preschool Program Standards (IQPPS) and Iowa Early Learning Standards. Through use of The Creative Curriculum, students will develop language and literacy skills, learning and thinking skills, social skills and large and small motor functions.

Each preschool classroom is led by a teacher certified in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. Paraeducators, Speech-Language Pathologists, and other staff provide on-site support (Bilingual tutors are available at the six elementary school sites).
