In just three years, Tina Haack of The Little Mouse Preschool in the Boulevard Church of Christ, 7041 West Sylvania Ave., has grown from 41 children with two classrooms and a staff of three, to now having four teachers, two aides, four classrooms and a total enrollment of 75 students for 2017-18 school year. “We graduated 35 students this year, which was our biggest class ever,” Haack stated.

In addition to the expanding classrooms and staff this June just in time for the Little Mouse summer campers, Haack refurbished the playground, which has nearly doubled the outside space. “We purchased a new expanded play structure from Play World on Central Avenue and added artificial turf that is antibacterial and kid-safe,” she offered. In addition, the ground around several play areas is covered in super soft mulch certified for playgrounds. “We have a lot of retro structures including slides and teeter-totters that the kids really love to play on. With all the additional kids, the expansion was well needed. I know the kids will love this.”

Camp Little Mouse, is a six-week, themed program that runs from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., five days a week. The camp is at capacity for the summer with 50 campers.

The regular school year morning sessions run from 7:30 to 11 a.m. with lunch from 11 a.m. to noon. The afternoon sessions are from noon to 2:30 p.m. The Little Mouse Preschool offers curriculum-based programs for 3- and 4-year-olds along with Pre-kindergarten children. “We feature age-appropriate activities in a caring and fun environment staffed with licensed and experienced teachers. Our 3-year-old program focuses on introducing students to the preschool experience. This presents the opportunity for children to socialize and learn to work with others. Children learn the alphabet, both upper and lower case, and beginning math skills. There is story time and art every day that will accompany the alphabet and number learning process. The 4-year old and Pre-K program focuses on preparing students for kindergarten. This class offers built-in smart board learning. The rooms come alive with learning centers, art, calendar time all taught in a bright and fun environment. For students who attend all day, there is an afternoon enrichment program. This class covers many different subjects that prepare them for kindergarten. The program also expands on math and language skills developed in the pre-school curriculum along with writing and basic computer skills.

“We are adding Spanish for Pre-K students in the fall,” Haack said. “All classes are taught at a pace each student can follow and will allow them to grow and gain self-esteem.”

The Little Mouse Preschool offers music, library time and a monthly faith-based class. It also has off-site field trips twice a year. Parents have the option of enrolling their child in a two-day, three-day or five-day program for half days or whole days. Extended care options, before school from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and after school from 2:30 to 6 p.m., are also available.

Limited spots are still available for the 2017-18 school year.
