Pumpkin Patch Preschool

Pumpkin Patch was organized, incorporated and licensed in 1973 by a group of parents in the Stoughton area who felt the need for a qualified preschool in the community. More than forty years later, that tradition is still being upheld. Pumpkin Patch is a fully licensed and accredited preschool. Our staff consists of a School Administrator, two 4K Lead Teachers each with a degree in early childhood education with a license from the Department of Public Instruction, one 3 year-old Lead Teacher as well as three state certified teacher assistants.

Pumpkin Patch Preschool is a parent cooperative preschool. It is a non-profit and self supporting. It is solely run by a board of volunteer parents. Parental involvement is the most important key to the success of the school and to the success of your child’s preschool experience.

As a 3 year-old Pumpkin Patch Preschool family, you will be required to serve on a committee to help contribute to the success of the school. As a 4k family, your participation on a committee would be very welcome, but this is not a requirement. Committees range from very involved to a one-time helping out role. The parents are the school, and without them, we couldn’t exist. This is your chance to be directly involved in your child’s preschool education.

  • Cultivate a stimulating environment for emotional, social, and academic growth
  • Encourage self confidence, independence, and responsibility
  • Develop understanding of others and their feelings
  • Promote self-expression and discovery in learning
  • Teach problem solving skills
  • Build a positive attitude toward learning, creating a foundation for future education
  • Parents are surrounded by a community of like-minded parents who highly value their children’s education.
  • School becomes special when a parent is there to share it.
  • Communication between parents and teachers is more frequent and effective.
  • Children see the value their parents place on education.
  • Parents have an opportunity to contribute their talents and perhaps discover new ones.
  • Children develop a more positive attitude toward school.
  • Parents have opportunity for involvement in all aspects of their child’s education and a voice in school decisions and policy.
