Dalton Preschool provides a nurturing, educational, and safe environment for students and their families.

The Dalton Preschool Difference

Engaging Curriculum

Play is the foundation of our curriculum. It provides the most effective stage for brain development and learning in the early childhood years.

Supportive Environment

Our core value is kindness. The preschool program is child-centered, nurturing students of varying backgrounds, interests, and abilities.

Community Focused

Our small class size and high student-teacher ratio promotes the development of meaningful social, emotional, and physical learning experiences.

We are enrolling for fall 2023!

Dalton Preschool is accepting fall enrollments for full and part-time students, ages 2.9 to 5 years. Our school operates from 8:15 am to 3:30 pm, following the Central Berkshire Regional School district calendar. We anticipate starting the new year on September 6, 2023. Visit our Instagram to see our learning and fun educational lessons in action.

Dalton Preschool is a parent cooperative, and parent participation and involvement are highly encouraged. We keep our enrollment numbers low to have a high staff-to-student ratio of 10-14 children with two teachers. Our curriculum includes math, science, and literacy to promote school readiness.

Testimonials from our Community

“As a teacher myself, I care so much about the love and attention students receive from their caregivers and this is truly a warm and supportive environment. We hope that our other children will also have the opportunity to grow and learn at this great preschool!”

“We witness [our child’s] growth daily. The curriculum emphasizes empathy, social awareness, and creativity alongside traditional skills. The teachers are fantastic as is the community of parents, who are continuously pitching in to help out. Cannot recommend this school more highly!”

“Both of my oldest children have attended and I cannot express how much it has helped prepare them for kindergarten. I always looked forward to the conversations with my son when I pick him up from school…. he is always excited to tell me about his day.”

“I love Dalton Preschool! Stephanie and Tina are amazing at getting to know the children individually, and I feel listened to when I tell them the needs of my child. They always make sure he is included even though he only goes three days a week. When he is having a rough morning, they always send me photos and a message to update me on how he is doing. I trust them with my child and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great preschool program.”
