What is Preschool? 

Preschool is NOT daycare.  Preschool, also known as nursery school, is the education that precedes kindergarten.  A typical preschool setting is a classroom that enhances learning by offering educational stations, play centers, and an outdoor play area.  

Our preschool program is a half day program that runs September to mid June.  Our mission is to prepare your child for kindergarten by offering pre-literacy skills, pre-math skills, and letter recognition.

I went to Kids Count Learning Center from 1998 to 2000. I am now graduating from Messalonskee High School and still think about my time in Pre-School. It was there that I learned to read and write and just have fun. I remember that we learned in ways that were new and exciting. My most vivid memory is of a time when we were learning about pumpkins and the class got to dissect them.. just to see what was inside.
My class used to read in the tree house in the playroom and learn to write in the kitchen. I was in the first graduating class of this school and this is where I got my thirst for learning. Miss Crystal and Miss JoJean were my first teachers and will always be two of my favorites.

Both my daughters attended Kids Count and I would recommend them to anyone that has children going to preschool. Ms. Crystal and Ms. Jojean made learning fun and both my girls have excelled in school and I truly believe it was because they had a great preschool experience.

The school was always clean and very cheery and they had awesome field trips and a great playground area.  Ms. Crystal and Ms. JoJean were very caring and you could tell that they loved their jobs and the kids.
