Thank you for your interest in your child’s preschool learning experience at the Camp Curtin Community Preschool.
In response to the need for an early-learning program in Uptown Harrisburg, Camp Curtin Community Preschool was started in February 2015. The school is free to qualifying families and children; a modest tuition is charged for families earning over $78,000 per year.
Camp Curtin Community Preschool works closely with the Harrisburg Area Community College’s Early Childhood Education Program to ensure that the preschool provides a high-quality academic and social curriculum that prepares our children to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
Camp Curtin Memorial Mitchell United Methodist Church donates classroom space for the preschool. Friends, neighbors and businesses support the school through volunteerism, providing school and classroom supplies and other necessary services as well as by giving financial support. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank provides breakfast and lunch for the children.
The school operates with a professional, paid head-teacher, a teacher-aide and several volunteer teacher aides. These hands-on individuals are supported by a committed board of directors.
Covenant Community Corporation, a nonprofit organization, serves as fiscal agent for the school.
This generosity has made it possible for the school to grow from 3 mornings a week starting in 2015, to 5 partial-days a week in January 2018.
