The meeting to explain the tuition-based preschool for children ages 3-5 will be held at 7 p.m., at the Creekside Early Childhood School, 5070 Tylersville Road, in West Chester Township.
Administrators and staff from each of the district’s three early childhood schools will talk about their programs and answer questions.
The program offers morning classes, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.; and afternoon classes, from 1:20 p.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, at Creekside, Shawnee and Liberty early childhood schools. Classes contain both children with special needs and typically developing children.
Tuition for typically developing children is $245 per month, for nine months. A $50 non-refundable registration fee will be due upon acceptance and will be applied to the last month’s tuition.
Enrollment for the 2014-15 school year for typically developing children is through a lottery with applications being taken through Jan. 31 with parental notification of admission by the end of February.
Those children already in the program may remain there without going through the lottery. Siblings of returning children are given priority during registration. Only children living within the boundaries of the Lakota schools are eligible to attend.
Applications are available at each of the three early childhood schools or online at www.lakotaonline.com. No applications will be accepted by phone or fax.
