2022-2-23 Preschool Information

Update for 22-23 school year: We are requiring all children to be potty trained before starting the 22-23 school year. We will set up accommodations for any child who has delays or disabilities that may hinder them from meeting this requirement. A meeting with the child’s teacher, the special education teacher, and the director will need to take place prior to the first day of school.
