Studebaker Preschool is an integrated preschool program that provides early intervention opportunities for children ages 3-5 for both typical students and students with disabilities. Enrolled students attend one of two sessions (AM: 9:20-11:50 or PM: 1:15-3:45). Children who are five years old on or before August 1st are eligible to enroll in kindergarten.

The preschool program uses The Creative Curriculum ® for Preschool, a comprehensive, research-based curriculum, which features exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical-thinking skills. We’ve chosen this curriculum because it focuses on the skills and knowledge that are most important for helping your child to be successful in school. Throughout the year, we will plan learning experiences that are just right for your child, so that he or she can make progress at his or her own pace.

We will also utilize a digital platform, Seesaw. It is primarily used to increase student engagement, inspiring even our youngest learners to do their best! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos, and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students. And the platform can be used for parent-teacher communication.

Hello! My name is Dr. Vanisa Turney, principal at Studebaker Preschool. Before becoming the principal at Studebaker Preschool, I served as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for Huber Heights City Schools. I have over fifteen years of experience in education, having served as a classroom teacher, curriculum specialist, PK-8th grade assistant principal, and 5th-8th grade principal. I received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in middle childhood education from Wright State University, and obtained my principal licensure, as well as the curriculum, instruction and professional development licensure from the University of Dayton. In 2016, I earned a doctoral degree in curriculum and instruction. 

On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome our new preschool students and our returning preschool students! It is with great honor and much enthusiasm that we welcome you to our school.
