Learning Center Preschool at Diamond Lake Recreation Center

Learning Center Preschool programs are designed to provide education through recreation and give children the opportunity to grow emotionally, intellectually, and socially. These programs are recommended by local school districts for kindergarten readiness. Preschool classes are in session from mid-September to mid-May.

Our goal is to prepare your child for their first elementary school experience by developing their self-confidence, independence, and cooperation. Plus! There is age-appropriate outdoor play equipment for 3 and 4-year-olds, extended class times, and more.
