Located in Warrenton, Oregon, Warrenton Prep was established in 2012 when Superintendent Mark Jeffery envisioned utilizing empty classrooms for a pre-kindergarten program.
He wanted a preschool that focused on academics such as literacy and number concepts, enabling the youngsters to slide right into kindergarten.
“I believe this age group is capable of reading before beginning kindergarten and that is just what our preschool aims to do,” Jeffery says.
Warrenton is located on the Oregon coast, six miles south of Astoria and twelve miles north of Seaside. As far as we know, it was the first preschool in the county that was affiliated with a school district.
