Preschool Registration for the 2013-14 school year begins Monday.
Preschool helps prepare children for kindergarten. Students learn to follow directions and work cooperatively with each other. They are exposed to letters, numbers, shapes, colors and more. Preschool students learn how to socialize, share and get along with other kids. In addition, they gain a sense of self, self-control and build their confidence in themselves and what they can do.
To be eligible to attend preschool in the fall of 2013, children must be 4 years old by Sept. 15, 2013.
