About Little Raiders

At Little Little Raiders Preschool, we believe that children learn by doing, getting messy, investigating answers to their questions, problem solving with their friends, playing games, using their imaginations, expressing their emotions, creating, and exploring the world around them.

We provide a high quality Kindergarten readiness program and care for every student who comes into our classroom. We intentionally plan and organize the classroom, so students can grow in the following areas: social emotional, language and literacy, math, science, creative arts, fine and gross motor skills.

Parent Testimonials

Little Raiders is a great preschool program. The teachers and staff go above and beyond and are great with the kids. Not only does Little Raiders provide structure and routine but it also allows the kids to meet other school staff and adjust to the school setting. I would definitely recommend Little Raiders

Amy (Kenzie) 2018-2019 School Year 

 

The Little Raiders program was an awesome experience for my daughter. Little Raiders curriculum aligns with the curriculum of the DK and K programs. My daughter was also very familiar with the school when she entered DK making the transition to school much easier. The staff in Little Raiders helped prepare my daughter not only educational, but social and emotionally. She was taught how to problem solve and work with others her age.  A very important skill that can't be taught at home. Many lessons are taught through play and fun.  My daughter still talks about the donuts and cider they sold to the staff, not only did the kids work at selling the stuff but also became familiar with staff in the building.

Patti (Harper) 2019-2020 School Year 

 

Our daughter attended Little Raiders in 2019 and it was an amazing experience for her and our family. When she first started the program she was very shy and hesitant about going to class, especially knowing that her little sister was at home. She learned so much while she was there and felt supported and encouraged to grow and develop friendships. By the end of the year she was counting down the days until it was time to go back and couldn’t wait to go and see her teacher and friends. Overall we couldn’t be happier with the support and development and felt connected throughout the entire process. Mrs. Prince was in contact with us during all of the achievements and plans to help our daughter branch out more. She is very thoughtful, knowledgeable, outgoing and is loved by our family.

The teachers and staff at Little Raiders Preschool are some of the most creative educators I've ever met!  They are always finding fun ways to help their students learn. I can tell that they truly care about each child and helping foster their development and learning. I know my daughter will be well prepared to start kindergarten as a result of her time at Little Raiders.

We love Little Raiders so much! The teachers and staff are fun, loving and care for my littles and are attentive to their needs. Little Raiders provided our littles with the skills and confidence to transition into the next level of elementary education.

Jenny 2019-2020 (Jordan, Jase)  & 2020-2021(Emmett) 

 

Our family has been so impressed and happy with the Little Raiders program. Our son loves his time with all his teachers and "helpers" and the fun and engaging classroom activities (especially the traveling Gingerbread Man!). The updates via ClassDojo give us a window into our son's day and allow us to ask more leading questions when he comes home. But most importantly, we cannot speak highly enough of the entire staff, especially this year with all it's challenges. Our son has always felt safe and loved. He's having so much fun he doesn't even realize he's learning!
