Welcome to the Preschool Center

3 - 4 years

The preschool years are an expansive time, an ideal time for exploration. Growing skills allow students to explore and interact with their environment, making this stage of development a very exciting time for students and teachers alike.

What to Expect

In addition to their Center teachers, students in Preschool work in collaboration with different program specialists in Music, Physical Development, Drama, and Spanish, providing opportunities to practice a variety of important skills and to explore new spaces and materials.

Jaclyn Bollinger

Home Center Director, Preschool


Jackie Bollinger joined Mead in 2017 as a Curriculum Teacher in Pre-K, and in June of 2020 moved into her role as Home Center Director of the Preschool center. Prior to her work at Mead, Jackie taught Kindergarten in Arizona for three years. She has a BA in Early Childhood and Special Education, and a Master's Degree in Family and Human Development.

Jackie loves teaching Preschool students and working in Early Childhood because each day brings something new; not only do the children learn and grow, but she does, as well, by working with them. In her free time, Jackie enjoys spending time with her husband and their two-year-old son, Beckum, who is a toddler in our Early Learning Program.

We have had both of our daughters in the Mead School's Preschool and could not imagine them spending this important year in any other program. The staff embrace the whole of the student, and celebrate a child's need to be curious. Our daughters have been privileged to be supported & nurtured in this very special place.
