    It is the mission of Rainier Preschool to provide an early learning opportunity for children who are 3 1/2 to 5 years of age.  We value children of all abilities and strive to meet their educational and social needs.  The preschool operates a morning and afternoon session, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.   

    Our goals and objective are:
    • To encourage in each child, self-confidence, concern for others and cooperation in work and play.                                     
    • To further develop in each child the skills in listening, self-discipline, independence, positive social skills and self regulation.                                                                                                                                                                           
    • To provide enough variety to stimulate each child and enough routine to five each child a sense of stability.                                                                                                                                                                                                
    • To introduce each child to various materials, people and experiences to aid them in their abilities to accept and deal effectively with differences and change.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
    • To give each child the opportunity to solve problems and make appropriate decisions within the realm of their own choices for activities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
    • To encourage and develop in each child a love for life-long learning, focusing on pre-writing, pre-reading and pre-math skills.
