We agree with those who say parents should focus on early education as much as they focus on their children going to a good college.

The Naturally Inspired Child is a comprehensive preschool program that aims to prepare your child not just for kindergarten, but for lifelong learning. These are the years to invest in your children and equip them with the values and skills they will need for the rest of their lives. We offer a five day morning program that features low child to teacher ratios and structure through independent, small group, and large group activities.

Five days sound like a lot for your child? Experience and research prove that regardless of age, children thrive on consistency and routine. A five day program allows for an established routine and schedule that will help your child get the most out of these formative early years. Social and emotional development, academic readiness, group and independent activities, and a wide range of hands-on experiences are the focus of our days. In addition, with Rapid City’s kindergartens recent move to a full day schedule, a five day preschool program more fully prepares you child for a traditional school day.

Our enrichment program allows your child more time in an educational, social environment to refine their developmental goals, while offering you, the parent, more flexibility in your schedule. Children may enroll for one to five days of enrichment, which will include lunch, a rest time, and independent and group activities to further prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond.

We also offer an additional lunch hour available 1-5 days a week. It’s everyone’s favorite hour!

We hope you choose The Naturally Inspired Child as the place to lay the foundation of your child’s education!
