For over 70 years, Strathmoor Preschool Education Center has served the Upper Highlands and the Louisville area’s early childhood education needs. We are an outreach mission of Strathmoor Presbyterian Church that welcomes all children and families regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, creed, or religious affiliation. We are a school-year facility with classes that begin in mid-August and run through May. We have a similar schedule to JCPS with similar school breaks.

We are here to provide the following:

  • safe and nurturing care
  • developmentally appropriate education
  • learning through hands-on, multi-sensory approaches
  • monthly Chapel time for spiritual growth
  • affirmative guidance that encourages the growth of each child

We are a four-star-rated External link opens in new tab or windowKentucky All STARS facility.

Our classes are held from 9:30am until 12:30pm with before- and after-school-care options offered.

Early and late care assumes enrollment for the entire school year with some flexible options available.

The student must be enrolled in preschool classes on the days extended care is needed.

Here is specific information about each age:

  • Two-year-old children may begin attending on their birthday if space is available. We have a three-day option (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) or a five-day option (Monday-Friday) per week. The children experience age appropriate, center-based activities that follow the school-wide curriculum themes.
  • Three-year-old children who turn three by August 1 may attend either three mornings per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) or five mornings per week (Monday-Friday). Please note that children in the Preschool Class (3’s) MUST be potty-trained prior to the first day of classes.
  • Pre-kindergarten consists of children who turn four by August 1 or five-year-old children. This class is five mornings per week to prepare the students for Kindergarten the following year or for children who may need a little more time before attending Kindergarten.


We offer a reduced annual tuition rate for those who want to pay for the entire year prior to the first day of class in August, or families may make ten (10) monthly payments on the first of each month beginning in August. We accept the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) offered through the state's External link opens in new tab or windowKentucky Benefits (kynect) program. Strathmoor Presbyterian Church offers a limited number of partial scholarships. Please call us for further financial information.
