Early Childhood

Preschool Programs

Careful consideration is given to providing age-appropriate programs. We adhere by birthday deadlines to provide instruction that meets the developmental needs of our students. In addition, each class of 3's, 4’s, and Bridge is created to follow in succession to best prepare the child developmentally, emotionally, socially, and physically for the Kindergarten year.

  • Students desiring to enter PreK- 4 must turn four years old by September 1.
  • Students desiring to enter our Bridge Class must be five years old by September 1 and must have completed PreK- 4.
  • Every PreK-4 student from our preschool is an automatic candidate for either Kindergarten, or a candidate for the Bridge program if not Kindergarten ready.
  • All preschool students must have a current immunization record for each child. Records must be updated as immunizations are administered, as well as at the beginning of each school year. In the event a family is unable to immunize their child for medical reasons, a current, original physician’s note must be supplied prior to the first day of school.
  • Exceptions to immunizations are permitted with an authorized immunization exception letter from the state.
  • Preschool students and Bridge students are expected to be potty-trained. Students must be independent to take care of their personal toiletry needs.
