Franklin County CareerTech Little Apprentices Preschool Now Enrolling

Franklin County’s CareerTech Little Apprentices Preschool is currently accepting new students for limited slots available on Mondays and Wednesdays. The program, designed to foster early childhood development, offers a comprehensive experience focusing on cognitive, physical, social, and emotional growth through a variety of group and individual activities.

The preschool program, facilitated by Mrs. Katie Wilmot, an Early Childhood Education Instructor with a decade of experience, leverages high school students who are aspiring preschool teachers. These students are involved in planning and delivering daily activities under close supervision, providing them with hands-on experience in their chosen career path.

Each day, the preschool provides snacks that are carefully planned and prepared by the high school teaching staff, ensuring that the children’s nutritional needs are met in a thoughtful manner. Additionally, the program includes unique on-campus “field trips” to various CareerTech programs such as health, landscaping, and horticulture, enriching the children’s learning experience beyond the traditional classroom setting.

Tuition for the program is priced at $125 per semester. Parents interested in enrolling their children or seeking more information can visit the official website at Franklin County CareerTech or contact Mrs. Wilmot directly at

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
