Your child receives an unmatched experience at the Anne & Jim Kenan Preschool, as part of a dynamic program built on mutual respect between children and adults.
At Kenan, the best research-based learning techniques are applied to ensure that behind every warm, welcoming classroom is the intentional building of curricula to directly support each child's learning.
Kenan teachers have expertise in child development and understand the science behind what is required to best prepare our youngest learners for everything that comes after preschool.
Kenan staff encourage children's curiosity as they develop confidence and construct brains built for reading, thinking, empathizing and problem-solving.
Kenan admissions is open October through early January. We invite you to explore the Kenan Difference and attend an upcoming Open House.
When I think about things I’m grateful for, which is an exercise I try to be purposeful about these days, William being at Kenan is among those at the top of the list. It’s clear that he is thriving, and I love hearing his enthusiasm when talking about his friends, his teachers and the curriculum. The care that everyone has for the Kenan students is perpetually evident, and we know it’s a special place. We’re so grateful for you and your team…truly.
We are elated that our daughter was invited to join the Kenan community! We have seen the magic and joy of Kenan through Maya’s experience and we can’t wait for Mira to join as well.
It's one of the first places where my children felt they were part of a larger family that extended beyond our home. It was also one of my first experiences where I felt we were in this together in raising our family. It wasn't just a stop along the way, but the place that built the foundation for where else they would go, and who they would be. Kenan shaped their relationships for their lifetime, and got them ready for all the other places they were educated.
