Welcome to Purple Door Preschool!

Purple Door is a true play-based preschool for potty trained students 33 months through five years old.

In small groups of eleven students to two teachers, children move around the most unique school in the Reno/Sparks area!  With 12 special rooms including, Engineering, Mechanics, Symphonies, the Science Lab, the Art Studio and so many more, kids rotate around the school with their small class.

We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Purple Door’s play-based, child centered school reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help and aesthetic areas for the total development of the young child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image in the child.

Our Philosophy


Parents are children's 1st teachers

Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program from the start.


Each child is unique!

We believe that each child should be respected and that all children can learn.


Child-teacher relationship

Our school will provide inclusive settings that recognize children’s varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles. We want each child to have a deep and meaningful relationship with their teachers.
