Lakota Local Schools has opened up registration for its preschool program for the 2011-2012 school year. The preschool program began in 1990 and was developed to serve children three-to-five years old, who qualify for special education services.
There was an informational meeting about the program scheduled tonight, Jan. 11, at the Liberty Early Childhood School. That meeting, however, was canceled due to the weather.
Additional information about the program was provided in a press release.
The program provides a nurturing environment that supports the intellectual, academic, and social growth of young children. Each class is comprised of children with identified disabilities as well as children who are typically developing.
Lakota’s preschool is a two-and-a-half hour program that runs Monday through Thursday. Morning and afternoon sessions are offered.
Children must be three years old on or before Sept. 30, 2011 to be eligible. Children, who will be five years old on or before Sept. 30, 2011, are not eligible for the preschool program.
The program will be offered at Shawnee Early Childhood School, Creekside Early Childhood School and Liberty Early Childhood School.
Additional informational meetings are scheduled for Jan. 19 at Shawnee ECS at 7 p.m. and for Jan. 30 at Creekside ECS at 7 p.m.
Registration information and applications are currently available on the Lakota Local Schools website. This information is also available at Shawnee, Creekside, Liberty and Wyandot early childhood schools, as well as at all Lakota elementary schools.
Applications should be returned to Creekside, Liberty or Shawnee no later than Jan. 31. It is expected that the number of children applying will exceed the available vacancies, therefore a lottery to determine enrollment.
