Preschool Teacher Preschool at MCCSC 

All MCCSC preschool programs use the Foundations to the Indiana Academic Standards for young children. The Foundations are aligned with the Indiana Academic Standards for kindergarten in a developmentally-appropriate way and reflect the types of experiences and interactions early learners need in order to be ready to transition to kindergarten. MCCSC is committed to education at every age. We offer a wide range of preschool options spread throughout the district. The following list provides an overview of those programs and contact information for enrollment.

Ready Set Grow Preschool

Ready Set Grow Preschool serves children ages 3-5 in 7 of MCCSC's elementary schools (Binford, Childs, Clear Creek, Lakeview, Templeton, Unionville, and University).

Children from any school district may attend any program. RSG focuses on education and Kindergarten preparedness in a structured and interactive learning environment. All Ready Set Grow classrooms teach early skills in the development of literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts through play-based projects and social development. 

Ready Set Grow is a fee-based program and does accept the Indiana CASY/CCDF voucher. For more information on hours, pricing, and registration please click here or call us at 330-7702.”

The center houses five classrooms; infants (6 weeks-walking), early walkers (12 -24 mos), 2 year olds, preschool (3s) and pre-kindergarten (4-5s). Classroom teachers develop curriculum and create lesson plans to meet the developmentally appropriate needs of the children in their care. These plans are based on the IAEYC Foundations and developmentally appropriate practices.
