About Our Program

Welcome to WSD3 Preschool

Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the Widefield School District 3 (WSD3) Preschool Website! We are excited about the programs we have to offer for children ages 3-5 within our sites in Widefield School District. Between our North Preschool and Webster Elementary sites, we house 16 WSD3 Preschool classrooms, and one CPCD classroom. Each program has different things to offer the children of the Widefield Community. We have many different activities throughout the year for parents and children to participate in with each other. If you are interested in registering for one of our programs visit the "Contact Us" page for more information. We appreciate you taking the time to visit our site and if you have any more questions, please contact us in person.

Sincerely,

WSD3 Preschool Staff

Preschool Mission and Philosophy

Our preschool mission is to provide children with a safe and nurturing learning environment that will provide opportunities that stimulate and encourage growth of the whole child.  This includes their development in the areas of cognition, communication, social skills, motor, self-help and pre-academics. Our philosophy is that children learn best through a balanced approach that includes play and direct instruction.  We believe that play is the work of children and that we can facilitate learning through active exploration and interaction with other children, adults and materials. We also believe that by providing developmentally appropriate social and pre-academic instruction, we can foster a love of learning and build a strong foundation for their future educational experiences.

Use of Technology

The Widefield School District desires for your student to have an information rich education.  We believe this requires all students to have access to the Internet at school. Our Board policy regarding the Internet has changed to reflect this philosophy.  Under the new Board Policy JS-Student Use of Internet Electronic Communication, we no longer require parent permission before we will let your student access the Internet at school on a school owned device.  Instead, we expect that students will use the Internet unless you as the parent/guardian explicitly and annually submit the Annual Internet Opt-Out Form (See Board Policy JS-E) and return it to your student's school. Questions regarding this policy may be directed to Technology at (719) 391-3023.
