Animal Tales Preschool

Students learn core skills with an animal theme. They will also interact with “animal ambassadors” in the classroom. Our preschool provides small class sizes with a teacher-child ratio of at least one teacher for every eight students.

We strive to be a “green” preschool by using environmentally-friendly materials and integrating conservation techniques in the classroom. Students will learn the importance of reduce, reuse, and recycle in a fun, hands-on way every day! Preschool is held in the Desert Room at Cargill Learning Center.

Contact Animal Tales Preschool at 316-266-8213 to register or learn more.

Each class has a maximum of 15 students. Classes run September through May. A registration fee of $100 per year applies to all students.
