We are happy to announce a new addition to our Sturgis Community Preschool family! Former teacher in Herford, SD and Stepping Stones, Jessica Kusser will be joining us as our Monday-Thursday classroom teacher.
Children at Sturgis Community Preschool are exposed to a play-based, active learning approaches to early childhood education. We consider children to be active learners and teachers to be facilitators through dynamic, interactive experiences based on the interests of children.
Our interdisciplinary framework supports children’s needs for both independence and social learning. Not only do we know that children learn best through play, but that children are naturally curious. Through developmentally appropriate practices and projects, students are able to construct their own knowledge through aided- investigations and enhanced discovery.
Balanced and thoughtful planning, as well as ongoing observations and assessments allow our staff to differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of all learners based on learning goals defined by South Dakota Early Learning Guidelines.
Our children embark on a journey exploring mathematics, language and literacy, science, health and physical development, social studies, and approaches to learning, as well as social/emotional development.
Limited openings are still available for the 4-Day Kindergarten Readiness class (M-TH 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.). Allow us to nurture curiosity and instill the joy of learning. This class is offered at $185 per month. Check out our early drop off and late pick up options!

It is with such bittersweet emotions that I say goodbye to my first and last year teaching at Sturgis Community Preschool. This year has been so amazing and filled with such joy and wonder, as I’ve watched all of the kiddos learn and experience life, from learning how to sew to playing store and using their imaginations. It is a year that I will truly treasure. I have truly enjoyed loving on each and every one of my students, watching them grow and learn. What a blessing this year has been! From one great blessing to the next, I have been given the opportunity to stay at home with my four kiddos and also work part-time for my husband’s survey company and property management company. As both my preschoolers and myself start on a new journey I can’t help but quote Dr. Seuss. “Oh the places you’ll go, Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So…get on your way!” Parents, thank you so much for entrusting your kiddos to me this past year! They all hold a very special place in my heart.
