The Anthony Wayne Local Schools Preschool Program is a developmentally appropriate program providing educational services to typically developing children and children with special needs, between the ages of three and five. 

Children attend preschool Tuesday through Friday (and occasional Mondays), following the Anthony Wayne Local School District’s calendar. There are morning and afternoon sessions available, with a maximum of 16 children permitted with a highly trained teacher and an additional supervising adult in the classroom.
We partner with the
