Tiny Tigers Preschool in Princeton is currently accepting applications for the 2023-24 school year. This will be the 33rd year Tiny Tigers has been running.

Sessions will now begin Nov. 6 and continue through mid-May. Sessions will meet from 9:15 to 10:35 a.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children may attend a combination of sessions that fit their schedule. The cost is $2 a day.

The preschool program is a component of the Child Care Occupations class at Princeton High School. Students enrolled in the course are juniors and seniors who enjoy working with young children and are considering a child-related career.

The program is a learning lab designed to provide hands-on experiences for high school students to develop appropriate activities for preschoolers.

Early childhood activities are studied, planned and taught by high school students under the supervision and directions of high school instructor Jennifer Wagner.

Applications are taken throughout the school year and are open to children who have celebrated a third birthday until they enter kindergarten.

Tiny Tigers Preschool follows the same schedule as Princeton High School for vacations and holidays. Applications can be picked up at Princeton High School in the main office or by calling PHS.
