As a laboratory school for Child Development classes and internships,teachers and selected high school students engage as learning partners with children through play. Children thrive in our preschool and the relationships that develop between high school and preschool students are at the heart of our program.

We look forward to receiving applications for the 2016-2017 academic year. Our annual tuition is $9000 for the 15-16 school year and is pro-rated for part-time enrollment. The tuition is not expected to change for 2016-2017. Children may be enrolled for three, four or five full days. The Amherst Regional High School Preschool program is committed to building a diverse and gender balanced preschool community.
