Early Learning Preschool

All MCCSC preschool programs use the Foundations to the Indiana Academic Standards for young children. The Foundations are aligned with the Indiana Academic Standards for kindergarten in a developmentally-appropriate way and reflect the types of experiences and interactions early learners need in order to be ready to transition to kindergarten. Many of our Early Learning programs are Level 4 Paths to Quality. MCCSC is committed to education at every age.


We offer a wide range of preschool options for children ages three through five throughout the district at the following elementary schools: Arlington Heights, Binford, Childs, Clear Creek, Fairview, Grandview, Highland Park, Lakeview, Summit, and Templeton, Unionville, and University.


MCCSC Early Learning programs focus on education and kindergarten readiness in a structured and interactive learning environment. Our classrooms teach early skills in the development of literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts through play-based projects and social development.


*Children who attend HHCC during the school year have the option to enroll at the ELC during the summer, subject to availability.
