Welcome to Our School


The Mission of Franklin Preschool is to provide a developmentally appropriate preschool experience for preschool children and their families of the Mattoon Community Unit School District #2. 

Franklin Preschool staff gathered to create the universal expectations we would like to see throughout the school.  The Superfriend roll out from the beginning of the school year is a result of that collaboration.  Staff determined that they want all students to understand and follow the following three standards.  Listening Ears, Watching Eyes, and Calm Bodies.
