Tracy Landgren, Director

Fairmont Preschool was established in 1957. Although sponsored by Fairmont Church, the program has never been limited to church families and many of the children are from non-Fairmont families.

Fairmont Preschool offers children a wide variety of creative and educational toys and equipment.  Rooms are spacious and well-planned, providing an excellent environment for both group and individual play and activities.

The staff is highly qualified and members continue their education by regularly taking courses and attending meetings, conferences, and workshops. Our preschool is a self-supporting non-profit.  We are happy to offer the following programs:

Four-Year-Old Class (4 days/week class)
HOURS: 8:30-11:30 M, T, W and F
TUITION: $198 per month

Our purpose is to provide a Christian atmosphere to supplement and enrich children’s home life. Our primary goal is to help each child develop a positive self-image through daily experiences in:

  1. Gaining a measure of independence by caring for him/herself.
  2. Growing emotionally and spiritually by learning to get along with his/her teachers and peers.
  3. Learning to share toys and to wait for his/her turn.
  4. Beginning to accept some responsibility for his/her own behavior.

We strive to help each child have a first school experience that is positive and happy and will encourage a good attitude toward school, teachers, friends, and learning.

In addition to social/emotional skills, the curriculum also focuses on cognitive, motor, and language skills. In the 3-year old classroom, students are introduced to and familiarized with these skills. In the 4-year old classroom, students develop a mastery of these skills. This progression of skill development helps prepare students for Kindergarten.
