Rising Stars Preschool is a nonprofit preschool in La Pine, Oregon.
Located in the La Pine Community Campus building (near La Pine High School), Rising Stars Preschool is celebrating 17 years of bringing quality preschool instruction to children ages 3-5 years old.
Rising Stars Preschool’s mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging learning environment for children in southern Deschutes County. We strive to deliver a developmentally appropriate program that meets the needs of all children and families. Our goal is to prepare our students to be socially and emotionally ready to transition from Preschool to Kindergarten.
Rising Stars Preschool is a non-profit corporation managed by an Executive Board of Directors who provides oversight to the management of the preschool program. Our Executive Board is required for us to be able to operate as a non-profit organization. Our Board meets monthly to continually focus on funding and aides in the day to day operations of the preschool. The Board of Directors communicates closely with the director and teachers to enhance the success of every child’s early educational experience. Board member time commitment is relatively limited, but each member serves a vital role in the day-to-day operation of our preschool! Consider becoming a volunteer member of our Board. Contact Rising Stars Preschool Director or Teachers for more information.
All monthly Board meetings are open to the public.
Rising Stars Preschool is located at the La Pine Community Campus, 2nd classroom on the right. We strive to offer an affordable preschool experience for you and your child. We are a non-profit preschool that strives to keep our tuition low by way of parent volunteer efforts, fundraisers, grants and donations. Parent volunteers are an important component to the success of our program. We have different types of volunteer opportunities both within and without the classroom. From daily classroom volunteer opportunities, to once-a-year type opportunities that support us during individual events and fundraisers. We are also often looking for new Board Members (see above info under “Management.”)
*Due to COVID-19 restrictions our classroom volunteer opportunities are very limited. Please see our Director if you are interested in volunteering.
We serve 32 children and families with a developmentally appropriate early childhood educational experience. We offer a 3-year-old class two days per week with a total that can vary from 10-16 children. And, a 4-year-old class three days a week with a total of 16 children. At Rising Stars Preschool, your child will be served a snack daily and have an opportunity for outdoor activities on our playground. Your child will experiment, make new friends and learn/master many skills that will encourage growth and development.
*Until restrictions are lifted, we are able to serve 20 children and families. Class sizes will be limited to 10 children per class.
