Christian County Public Schools offer high-quality preschool programing for young children living in Christian County. The half-day programs are free of charge to parents and transportation is provided. Children attend school Monday through Thursday.
Children are closely supervised, with at least one adult to each ten children in the class. The program is designed to be developmentally appropriate for all children and includes low income four-year-olds of all ability levels, including those identified as disabled. It also includes three- and four-year-olds identified as disabled.
Related services are available to assist disabled children in benefiting from their educational program. These include speech/language, occupational therapy and physical therapy.
To be considered as a four-year-old, a child must turn four by August 1 of the present school year. A child born after August 1 of the present school year is considered a three-year-old for the entire school year.
To qualify for the preschool program a child must be either:
1) four years old by August 1 and meet the Preschool income guidelines (150% of poverty),
2) three or four years old and developmentally delayed.
Priority placement is given to qualifying children; however, if space is available, the program is open to any four-year-old child.
