McGregor Preschool

McGregor Preschool is a wonderful learning opportunity for children ages 3, 4 and 5. McGregor ISD #4 strives to provide the best possible start for all children ensuring every child is fully prepared for learning success.

McGregor Preschool is a Parent Aware Four Star rated program, the highest possible rating. To earn a four star rating, programs must excel in the use of best practices in preparing children for kindergarten. 

Our classes offer experiences in all areas of development including academic, fine motor, gross motor, language, social emotional and self help. Children's progress is monitored and their success is shared with parents throughout the year and at the parent-teacher conferences. 

We strongly support your role as a parent believing that the home is the child’s first learning environment and that parents are the child’s most important teacher. We provide programs for you as the parent to invest early in the life of your child.


  • McGregor Preschool partners with Early Childhood Special Education, Early Childhood Family Education, K-3rd Grade Teachers, Lakes & Pines Head Start and Aitkin County Public Health.
  • Classes are organized to support developmentally appropriate activities where play opens up the world of learning for young children.
  • All classes provide a nurturing and stimulating preschool environment.

It is a requirement that children enrolled are potty trained by the starting date.
