Hello Parents,

We are happy to announce that preschool registration will open on Monday, February 22nd for the 2021-2022 school year.

We will continue to offer both a 4-day and a 5-day program that follows the school day (child must be 4 years old on or before August 1, 2021).  However, we will only have 20 spots available for the 5-day program, and the Friday class will be a full day of Science Technology Engineering Art and Math.

We also offer a 4-day morning preschool program and an afternoon 2-day preschool program. The half-day programs are available for children age 3 and age 4,  (child must be 3 years old on or before August 1, 2021).

Costs for the program will continue to be affordable. Please view the program options for the 2021-2022 school year and monthly fees.  Registration will remain $50 which is non-refundable. If you are interested, please register early. We anticipate the 5- day option filling quickly. Thank you for your support of our program.

Early Childhood

Northwestern Consolidated School District provides preschool programming for children ages 3-5 years old who have significant delays in speech, learning, hearing, vision, motor skills and other areas of development at no cost to parents.

We offer free screenings and evaluations if parents or caregivers suspect their child may have delays in their skills.  Preschoolers who receive early intervention are better prepared to enter kindergarten classes.
