Located in the Walker D. Wyman Education Building on the UW-River Falls campus, The University Preschool offers a half-day learning environment for 4 and 5-year-old children. The preschool allows undergraduate education students to gain hands-on experience teaching young children in a staff-supervised learning environment. Meanwhile, our philosophy of "learning through play" enables our program to satisfy the needs of children on an individual basis in a supportive and culturally diverse classroom setting. The University Preschool 4K is a fully inclusive, licensed program that is supported by the River Falls School District and UW-River Falls. 

Some benefits of our program include:

  • A director and a lead teacher who possess master's degrees in early childhood education.
  • UWRF faculty members who regularly collaborate with the preschool's lead teachers to create innovative educational programs.
  • Access to UWRF's Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic, which allows us to offer speech and hearing programs for the children. We also offer vision and motor development programs.
  • An observation room with a one-way window that allows college students and parents to view our programs in action.
  • An inclusive program that allows students to work with typically developing children as well as children with special needs.
