Pearl Buck Preschool & Family Supports

All children need a safe, nurturing and enriched learning environment to fulfill their potential and enter school ready to learn. The Pearl Buck Preschool program is designed for families led by parents with cognitive challenges, whose children are at risk.

Preschool Curriculum

Most children whose parents have cognitive challenges are born without disabilities. However, their parents often lack the knowledge and means to provide the early learning experiences children need to thrive in kindergarten and beyond. These children are also at risk of abuse and neglect, even if unintended. Pearl Buck Preschool nurtures the children’s development and empowers parents to meet their family’s needs.

Our tuition-free, wraparound program includes:

In the classroom

In-home parent supports

We need you. Your gift does so much.

Our preschool consistently operates at full enrollment and there are many eligible families on our wait list. Unfortunately, we have the financial capacity to use only three of our six classrooms. Learn more about different ways to give to this program below.

Since starting at Pearl Buck Preschool, my son’s vocabulary has increased and he is able to express himself more. He’s learning to share and make friends as well.
