Planet Preschool is held in conjunction with Mars Area High School's Child Development I and Child Development II curriculum. High school students manage the program and are responsible for planning and implementing lesson plans. Activities often incorporate team-building and leadership skills. The program offers high school students a unique opportunity to work with and be around younger children, which helps the students to decide if they would like to pursue a career in a related field.
