3 Year Old Preschool

                     4 K student
                            Never too late to enroll! We accept enrollment year round.
                         Our History and Philosophy
The Fontana Preschool program was created out of our dedication to providing enriching educational opportunities to all children in our district and surrounding communities. We are happy to offer some of the youngest learners in those communities the opportunity to build friendships, explore STEM activities, and develop a positive sense of self as they explore the world around them. We believe that childhood is a journey, not a race which is why our focus is on learning through hands on play not worksheets and videos.

Mrs. Nelson (Formerly Ms. G) is a licensed Early Childhood/Early Childhood Special Education teacher currently seeking her Master's degree who loves working with 3 - 5 year olds. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater and had several years of experience in child care prior to joining the Fontana team. The 2018 school year will be her third year at Fontana. She also teaches Fontana's 4K program so you and your child will enjoy two years with Mrs. Nelson before graduating to the 5K program. She can be reached at extension 218 or via email at

Parent Communication: We believe in frequent communication between home and school. Through Parent-Teacher conferences, home visits and informal conversations at pick-up we share with you how your child is doing, what they are working on in school and talk about questions you may have about your child's development.

Daily Schedule:

Calendar - During calendar we work on ABC's, Number counting in English and Spanish, a community circle where we get to know each other, weather, name recognition and days of the week.

Daily Project - Every day we work on an art or literacy focused project to build fine motor skills that will help your child write as they get older.

Learning Centers - During centers your child learns how to work with others and explore different learning tools like puzzles and books.

Snack - We provide a daily snack to build healthy eating habits and friendship.

Recess - We go outside every day weather permitting to work on our large motor and teamwork skills.

Our Classroom: More photos coming soon!
