About Our School

In 1972, a group of mothers met for the purpose of establishing a pre-school for children in Holton, and the surrounding communities. Lollipop Lane Preschool provides children a group experience in which they may become aware of and appreciate the world around them. They are given an opportunity to learn, to share and cooperate with their classmates. The curriculum is based upon the skills that need to be mastered before entering kindergarten. The pre-school is located in the First United Methodist Church at 1401 W 4th in Holton. Students and parents may enter from the southeast doors

Board of Directors

Lollipop Lane Inc. is managed by a five member, VOLUNTEER, Board of Directors. Parents of past, present or future Lollipop Lane students are eligible to run for the board. Board members serve a two year term. They are rotated yearly by two positions rolling off one year; and three the next. Board positions are as follows:

Recording Secretary
Tuition Secretary
Public Relations Secretary

Lollipop Lane Inc. By-Laws state:
New Board members must take the positions of Tuition Secretary and Treasurer. (This allows members on the Board at all times that have experience with these two positions to help the incoming persons in these positions.)

Perks of running for the Board! 

  • Your child’s spot is reserved at preschool the year you run. 

  • You help make decisions about your child’s first early education opportunities.

  • Once a month you get a night out to visit with other preschool parents.
