Camas School District Preschools

Camas School District runs three early childhood preschool programs: one for 2½- through 3-year-olds, one for 3- through 4-year-olds, and another for 4- through 5-year-olds. All three programs are led by experienced preschool instructors many of whom are certified teachers and their qualified support staff. Each day is designed to meet every child’s social, emotional, physical, communication, cognitive, and pre-academic needs, using research-based instructional practices and activities aimed at achieving kindergarten readiness.


Prices are subject to change for the 2023-24 school year.

Peer models wanted

Camas Integrated Preschool is looking for some strong peer models to enhance the education of its students with special needs by being a helper, leader, and friend. In return, these peers can develop leadership qualities, confidence, and compassion. All students in the program participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate preschool activities. A good peer model:

  • Displays typical development and classroom behavior
  • Builds positive relationships with peers
  • Has age-appropriate pre-academic, motor, and play skills
  • Has age-appropriate communication skills

If you are interested in your student becoming a peer model in the Integrated Preschool, complete the following two steps. Enrollment is based on space availability and screening results.

  1. Complete the Peer Model Screening form by February 1, 2023
  2. Attend one Preschool Practice opportunity with your child at the Heights Learning Center, Room 103:
  • February 1, 2023, 11:00-12:00 PM
  • February 1, 2023, 4:30-5:30 PM
