The CTE Preschool is a state licensed, Reggio Emilia inspired preschool. This philosophy from Italy encourages children to explore and investigate many of their interests by providing an environment rich in materials.

We also provide a focus on early math and literacy. Children take part in free explore time, circle/story, art activities, snack and gross motor/ outside time each class. The classes have an average ratio of 1 teacher for every 2 children. We help children to resolve conflicts with peers or teachers through guided conversation and positive reinforcement.

The preschool is run by the Childhood Education/ Human Services program at the Center for Technology in Essex Jct. High school students who are entered in the program are student teachers in the preschool classes. A licensed teacher supervises the student teachers at all times. The supervisor has 15+ years of teaching experience including work with preschool children, children who have special needs, elementary school students and environmental/ agricultural education.

Our classes run Tuesday – Friday.  You can view the schedule below.   The program runs October through May. Please call for more information. 879-8150.  Center for Technology, Essex Preschool
