Little Rangers and Little Miners are Early Childhood Learning (preschool) programs that provide children ages 3, 4, and 5, with opportunities to interact with other children in a school setting. This helps them prepare for success in Kindergarten and beyond!

Our classes offer experiences in all areas of development including academic, fine motor, gross motor, language, social emotional, and self help. Children's progress is monitored and their progress is shared with parents throughout the year and at parent-teacher conferences.


Little Miners is for 3-year-olds (must be 3 by September 1st) and meets two half-days a week or two full-days a week. The annual class fee is $400 plus a $20 snack fee. Scholarships, sliding fees, and payment plans are available to those who qualify. No one will be turned away for an inability to pay!

New for 2019-2020 school year:
In an effort to better accommodate busy family schedules and provide a consistent, well-rounded learning environment, Little Rangers Family Center will be offering two new programs for the 2019-2020 school year: the Little Miners Extended Learning and Little Miners Care. 

Starting on September 9th, 2019 we will be offering full-day Little Miner Extended Learning where parents can drop off their child(ren) in the morning and then pick them up when the school day ends. They will attend their half-day session of preschool and then a half-day session of Little Miners Extended Learning. 

Preschoolers will also have the option to attend Little Miners Care, available before school from 6:45 to 8:00am and after school from 3:00 to 6:00pm. Ranger Care, designed for K-6 students, will still be available before and after school.


Little Rangers is for 4 and 5-year-olds (must be 4 by September 1st). Families have the option of two half-days a week or two full-days a week. The annual class fee is $800 plus a $20 snack fee. Scholarships, sliding fees and payment plans are available to those who qualify. No one will be turned away for an inability to pay!
