Preschool Programs

Programs for 3, 4, and 5 year olds.

Program Overview

Little Falls Community Schools offers preschool classes for children aged 3 to 5 years as part of our early childhood school readiness program. Our classes focus on independence, socialization, and introducing children to skills they will need to be successful elementary students. Preschool follows the Little Falls School District calendar for days off, late starts, and early outs. Preschool classes will be offered at both the Early Childhood Center in Little Falls and at Dr. S.G. Knight Elementary in Randall.

Early Childhood Center

The Early Childhood Center will open in September of 2017 and will house all Little Falls programs and early childhood offices.

We will continue to offer preschool programs at Dr. S.G. Knight Elementary, located at 504 East Minnesota Avenue in Randall, Minnesota.
