The pre-kindergarten program serves children, ages 3-5. Typically developing students must be three years of age by August 1st for admission. Four and Five year old children will receive priority for admission. Students must be completely toilet trained, which means they are able to function independently in the restroom. Children ages 3-5 with special needs are eligible to receive services outlined in their Individualized Education Plan. Students with disabilities transitioning from Part C programs (Help Me Grow) may enroll at the beginning of the school year as long as they turn three before December 1st. Otherwise, special needs students may enroll on their third birthday. Families/ guardians are required to reapply and submit updated income information if their child returns to the program for another year. The application deadline is May 18, 2022.
Site Location & Attendance Schedule:
The pre-kindergarten program is located in the Georgetown Elementary School at 935 Mt. Orab Pike. The Georgetown Exempted Village School District will continue to offer an alternate full-day schedule for pre-kindergarten. One group will attend on Mondays and Tuesdays and one group will attend on Thursdays and Fridays. Parents/guardians are asked to consider both attendance schedules and indicate their preference on the application. Bus transportation is also available for our Pre-K students.
Involvement in the pre-kindergarten program provides enriching experiences to enhance each child’s creative, language, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. The Get Set for School Curriculum is used to introduce students to the early learning and development standards as adopted by the Ohio Department of Education. Classroom activities are planned so that children can work independently, in small groups, and in large groups. Parents are welcome to volunteer in the classroom or to help with special projects.
