Welcome new 2018-2019 families!

Ourday offers preschool classes for children 2.5 to 5 years of age.  Most children come two or three mornings per week.  We have two teachers in every classroom of 10-14 children.  One of the special things about Ourday Preschool is our four hour morning program.  In addition to their classroom experiences, the children have music, gym, and art classes.
