To provide a hands-on opportunity for Mattoon High School students enrolled in dual credit curriculum through Lake Land College, we have created a tuition-based program, Little Waves, for preschool aged children that are also Mattoon residents at Franklin Preschool. The program offers high quality research-based curriculum, family and teacher partnerships, and community involvement.

This program is scheduled five days per week, starting in August and running through May.  An a.m. session is available from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and a p.m. session is available from 12:30-3 p.m. Before and after care will be available from 7-8:30 a.m. and 3:30-5 p.m. through Mattoon YMCA. Additional fees will apply for before and after care. Your child needs to be at least 3 years of age by the first day of classes and toilet trained to participate in this program. If they don’t turn 3 until the middle of the first semester (August-December), they can always register for the second semester (January-May). Bussing services will be available. Further information about program specifics will be discussed at our orientation in January and at open house, which will be held in August.  

We are now taking applications for enrollment in this program, but we are limited to the first 40 applicants that are received. We will have welcome packets for our tuition-based preschool program available at Franklin beginning Jan. 7.

 Tuition for the program is $300 per month per child. You must include a $100 deposit per child enrolled to ensure his or her spot.  Welcome packets can be obtained and should be turned in at Franklin Preschool. Please place any applications and deposit fee in an envelope labeled “Franklin Tuition Based Preschool, Attention: Melinda Beals” before dropping it off at Franklin. We will be hosting an orientation and tour at Franklin Preschool, in our specific area, which is the purple pod, on Jan. 24 from 6-7 p.m., to allow for prospective families to come and visit the facility and ask any further questions, as necessary. A presentation regarding the program itself will be given from 6-6:15 p.m. in the conference room and a tour of the building will be given from 6:15-6:30 p.m. Time for questions will be from 6:30-7 p.m. in the purple pod, which will serve as the tuition-based section of Franklin Preschool. Welcome packets can also be turned in at that time. In case of inclement weather, the date for this event will be Jan. 31 from 6 p.m.-7 p.m.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your child. Feel free to contact the main office at Franklin or Mrs. Clifford at MHS using the information provided below.
