Immaculate Conception School offers full-time and part-time pre-school for 3 and 4-year-old children. Our preschoolers are challenged in many ways through curriculum-based activities, motor and social skill development, and small group instruction with the classroom teacher. Our preschool program is designed as a full-day program (7:50-3:10) with rest time in the afternoon. IC Preschool is licensed to operate by the Arkansas Department of Human Services.
For more information on our program and a tour of our facilities, please contact our front office.
