Our 3’s and 4’s Preschool and School Readiness are housed in our elementary school, allowing our students to have a comfortable transition to kindergarten. Our 3’s and 4’s program is designed for children who turn three on or before September 1st. Our School Readiness program is designed for four and five year olds. For more information about preschool and pre-k registration, please contact our Early Childhood Director, Kelly Barker at 507-356-8876, or kbarker@pineisland.k12.mn.us 


We have been working to change our 3's and 4's  and School Readiness programs to better meet the needs of your children. We are using the Pyramid Model, which is a program that focuses on the social emotional needs of our students. We have implemented strategies to support children’s development, while fostering their abilities to problem solve, use higher level thinking, and to be a kind friend to their peers. Visit

Pine Island is a 4-Star Parent Aware rated preschool program.  Our classrooms have been arranged in a way to enhance learning at various centers, focusing on different skill sets, such as, fine motor, language, large group, small, group, creativity, and dramatic play.  Our curriculum aligns closely with Kindergarten expectations and goals. All of these experiences help children to prepare for Kindergarten and other social experiences.
