Our Preschool Philosophy

At Mr.s Durgin's Preschool, I provide your child with loving care, understanding, patience and guidance in a happy family setting. We offer age appropriate activities and a flexible schedule catered to our children's' unique needs. Children literally run in each day and when their parents come to pick them up they don't want to leave.


With guidance from professional educators and occupational therapists, we offer a preschool curriculum which facilitates the development of large and small motor skills as well as social skills. When doing arts and crafts our focus is always on the process and having fun, rather than the final product. Activities are tailored to your child's age, interest, and ability. We value imagination and read a lot of books to the kids. We also do arts and crafts, bubbles, sand play, water play, dancing, story telling, riding big wheels, and more!

It is here that children begin developing important skills they will use for the rest of their lives. We believe that free play is also an important part of a child's early years and make sure that is a part of every day.


We serve family style dining and fresh healthy food. We have cots for nap time (assigned to each child and cleaned weekly) and for children who don't nap we have restful quiet time. 


We are currently welcoming new families.

What Parents are Saying

“Ms. Debra took my 3-year-old in to her daycare. She made him feel welcome and loved from the moment he walked in the door. I appreciated Ms. Debra’s kind nature and great communication. It makes such a difference leaving your child when you know they are in good hands!"

Gina, Mom and Petaluma School District Teacher
