The Piedmont Recreation Department offers four play-based preschool programs for children ages 18 months to 5 1/2 years.

Our team of preschool educators is committed to providing a warm and safe environment to best support children's natural curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. We are dedicated to the development of a school/home community in which teachers and families learn and grow together.

Come explore PRD's play-based preschool programs and experience what it's like to be a part of OUR community!
