The Louisville Preschool was founded in July of 1993 with a vision and a sublease agreement with a local dance studio. Founder and Director, Kathy Krajewski, joined with Jan Ferrari to create a place where children could "play, learn, and grow". Their mission was to provide Eastern Boulder County with a small, high-quality part-day program that would support children and their families.
For over 25 years, our preschool program has provided a safe and nurturing environment with a commitment to children’s social emotional development. At the heart of our play-based program is the concept that children’s natural curiosity and interaction with their environment provides meaningful opportunities for growth in literacy, language, social awareness, cooperation, and compassion.
Every child is loved, nurtured, and valued for the individual that they are. Our teachers provide guidance and support as children discover a fascinating world of play and learning. Our goal is to prepare them socially, emotionally, and academically for a lifelong love of school and learning.
Our preschool is a private non-profit center dedicated to providing a quality preschool program that values play, encourages learning through individual exploration, and promotes positive social, cognitive, and physical growth while having fun.
The Louisville Preschool welcomes staff, students and families of all abilities, gender expressions, religions, races, colors, sexual orientations, and national or ethnic origins.
The Louisville Preschool school building is an authentic piece of Louisville history! In 1909, the Denver Interurban Company was formed to provide transportation between Denver and Boulder. One route came through the town of Louisville, and new tracks were laid. To go along with the railroad expansion, a train depot was built in 1910 and was called "The Louisville Station." The station served train crews for over 50 years before being closed in the early 1960s. It was purchased by the Lions Club in 1962 and was moved to the corner of Lafarge Ave and Pine Ave, where it still sits today. It became The Louisville Preschool in 1993.
The Louisville Preschool is a community site for the Colorado Preschool Program in partnership with the Boulder Valley School District.
