    You may be wondering if you should enroll your children in preschool this year due to the health and safety risks of face-to-face learning. The answer to your question is YES!

    We are currently finishing our Preparedness and Response Plan so children may return to school safely. Once it is complete, it will be available online through our website and social media platforms. We have planned ahead for enhanced cleaning and hygiene practices.

    We are also waiting on guidance for the opportunity to provide an all virtual option for preschool students. If this is possible, we want to make sure that your child is enrolled and has a spot to take part in a virtual option. Completing your child’s enrollment will also allow you the choice to send your child to school when in-person preschool is available and your family is ready.

    You can apply online, or by submitting a paper copy of your application to the secure mailbox at our office. If you have questions or need help applying, please call 269-250-9333.
