ECFE and School Readiness are programs of Duluth Community Education, with a mission for lifelong learning.

Starting preschool is an exciting milestone for your young child's life, marked by their emerging sense of independence and expanding social, language and thinking skills.  Duluth Public Schools offers several great preschool options.

Our Curriculum:
The Duluth Preschool curriculum promotes each child's social-emotional, language, physical and intellectual development.  Licensed early childhood teachers provide instruction from the following resources:
  • OWL- Opening the World of Learning
  • Second Step: social and emotional learning
  • SEEDS of Early Learning: rhyming, alliteration, letter names and letter sounds recognition.
In addition to the structured activities, children have plenty of time for free play, too. Research shows that play is important to healthy brain development. Preschool classroom activities are aligned with Duluth Public Schools kindergarten to grade twelve goals.

We Provide:
  • High quality early childhood experiences with licensed teachers
  • Parent education, support, and parent involvement
  • Full -and half-day options
  • A focus on health and nutrition
  • Services for children with disabilities
  • Assistance accessing community resources
