Kent City Schools’ Preschool

The Kent City School District accepts applications each spring for enrollment in our preschool classes for the upcoming school year.

The Kent City School District operates a fully licensed program for preschool children ages three and four, and those turning five after August 1st.  All programs are housed in a specially designed preschool wing at Davey Elementary School.  Transportation is provided by school bus.

The Kent City Schools Preschool Program offers half-day classes which meet Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 – 11:15 a.m. or 12:30 – 3:15 p.m.

Our program enrolls typically developing preschoolers on a tuition basis which is $2,568.00 for the 2014-2015 school year.  Our half-day programs also enroll preschoolers at no cost, who are Head Start income eligible, who are functioning one or more years below age level, or who are identified as Preschoolers with a Disability.  An annual instructional fee is charged to every preschool student.

The preschool curriculum is designed to meet the developmental needs of each child.  We strive to facilitate, encourage and enhance learning experiences for all children and to expand their knowledge of themselves and the world around them.

Our preschool programs are designed to focus on the child’s need to explore, create, experience and socialize with other children.  Each day is filled with creative experiences and activities to stimulate and challenge every child at his or her own developmental level.

All preschool teachers hold master’s degrees and all assistants have been certified by the Ohio Department of Education.  All programs are licensed by the State of Ohio.
