If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes a community to teach one. That’s the core belief held by the team at LCDS Preschool and Kindergarten (formerly Londonderry Child Development Society). LCDS is a not-for-profit, parent cooperative preschool and independent kindergarten program. Since 1972, LCDS has offered high-quality, comprehensive early education to 3, 4 and 5 year olds, in a nurturing and supportive environment.
The program at LCDS sets itself apart from many other preschool programs in two distinct ways – first, it’s taught by a teacher with a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology, along with qualified teaching assistants, and second, it brings together students aged 3, 4 and 5 in a program that focuses on Kindergarten-readiness for all children. Above all, the top goal is for each child to develop age-appropriate social, behavioral, developmental and communication skills in a fun, friendly and safe environment.
The LCDS program also includes strategic parental involvement, fun family social events, exciting in-class presentations and fabulous field trips! Class sizes are kept small – the program accepts a maximum of 7 Kindergarten students and a combined maximum of 17 total students in each class.
Registration is still being accepted for the afternoon programs in the Preschool and Kindergarten programs for the 2019/2020 school year. LCDS offers a FREE trial class opportunity for families interested in experiencing the program. Trial classes are available by appointment in advance by calling 780-473-7216.
