Welcome to Madeira Preschool
We are a community of early childhood educators who take great pride in providing our school’s youngest learners with a nurturing, safe, and interesting learning environment that engages young children every single day they are with us. Our classrooms are staffed with skilled, certified teachers who support children’s learning socially, academically and physically. Their goal is to create a high-quality educational experience for children and their families! Thank you for taking the time to look at our program. I am available through phone or email to answer questions or to schedule a classroom visit. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can find more information by clicking here for additional district information on services available to children who may need special education supports. We are happy to have you join our school community! Feel free to contact me with further questions.
