The Milford Preschool at the Eagan Center
Welcome to the Milford Preschool website. The Milford Preschool program emphasizes the importance of positive social interactions and healthy emotional development, as these provide the foundation for all social relations. It is our belief that all of these areas of development: physical, emotional, social and intellectual are of equal importance. The main objective of the Milford Preschool program is to provide each child with a foundation from which he or she can meet the challenge of more complex skills.
This program is designed to meet the needs of young children specifically three to five years old. It provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical and creative development. Each child has the opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving, personal interaction skills and develop concepts through first hand experiences.
