Preschool student

Welcome to the Bardstown Early Childhood Education Center! All children are valued members of our preschool and we strive to meet each child’s individual needs and interests. 

We seek to build a child’s intellectual and problem-solving skills, social-emotional, physical (large and fine motor), self-help, self-esteem, and communication skills. Curriculum is structured to be developmentally appropriate and child-centered. 

The role of our teachers is to support and extend each child’s learning through guided play and active exploration of materials. We also believe parent involvement is an important factor in the development of every child.
