Bend Preschool

With more than 21 years of experience, Bend Preschool believes that learning is done through experiential play. Our focus is the child as a whole.  

As a Preschool Promise Provider, Bend Preschool is proud to offer a variety of rigorous learning experiences. Our curriculum is aligned with Oregon’s Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines and is tailored to each individual child’s needs. 

Social Emotional development is a critical building block helping students throughout their academic lives.  Utilizing small group interaction and storytelling, our teachers help students develop the Social Emotional framework they need to be successful in their academic years.

At Bend Preschool, play has a vital role in our schools. Our teachers work to empower students by teaching them critical problem solving skills.  

Our teachers utilize Experience Early Learning curriculum, an outcomes based curriculum, that allows teachers to customize learning based on each individual student’s developmental needs.

Outdoor play is perhaps our favorite highlight in all of our programs.  Getting outside is vital to the mental health of our students… and gives everyone a chance to spend a little extra energy. Digging in the dirt, climbing a wall, negotiating rocks, passing through dark slides, picking blackberries, making mud pies -this is what childhood is about at Bend Preschool!  Students love to dig and plant gardens in the spring and enjoy the veggies grown by summer. If your child comes home dirty at the end of the day, we have all had a great day, full of memories!

At Bend Preschool, we’re proud to offer

  • Procare for touchless sign in and out, with a daily digest of what your child is learning and photos of their day
  • A team of Highly Qualified Teachers
  • Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum blended with Play Based Learning
  • Large Outdoor Exploration Areas for Gross Motor Development
  • Climate controlled environments, and
  • A sense of humor among our teaching team!

Our three unique facilities offer spacious classrooms with small break out areas and focus groups. Our playgrounds are equipped with interactive play structures that keep children learning while they are outside of the classroom. Our outdoor areas include slides, natural scapes for exploring, logs for climbing, sun and shaded areas, water play and swings!

Bend Preschool staff members actively participate in required health, safety, and educational trainings and are offered regular professional development opportunities to enhance their skills.
