Little Panthers Preschool serves three to five year old children in a multi-age learning environment. The preschool is based on the High/Scope approach which focuses on active learning, where children learn through direct, hands-on experiences with people,objects,events, and ideas.

To be eligible to attend Little Panthers Preschool, children must be three years of age by September 1, and fully potty trained.

Little Panthers Preschool is a half day program. 

Preschool tuition payments are due the first of every month from September – April. Checks may be made payable to DeWitt Community Ed and may be dropped off at the Community Education office located at the front of the Junior High building.

Please let us know if you are interested in an automatic deduction option using your credit/debit card.

Enrolling preschoolers must be 3 years old and fully potty trained by September 1st. Our preschool selection is based on a lottery system. You do not need to be a DeWitt resident to apply for Little Panthers Preschool.

For more information on the High Scope Curriculum, please see the Preschool Parent Handbook.
