Center Preschool opened in September 1986 and is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization. The program was church sponsored until June 2005. The preschool co-directors who established the program now own and operate it.
The preschool became accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC's) in December, 2000. Accreditation is valid for three years and is an ongoing process in which a voluntary internal comprehensive self-study is done. This process is followed by a visit from external professionals who review the center's compliance with the academy's criteria for hight quality childhood programs.
Alison Sullivan and Susan Trella, co-founders and directors have designed a program which promotes caring and sharing in a nurturing environment.
