Preschool Information

Lindop District 92

PreKindergarten Program Information

 

 

The PreKindergarten program at Lindop School services children ages 3-5 years old with placement priorities given to District 92 residents who fulfill registration requirements.

Lindop offers a half day and full day program for those who meet state mandated criteria. Class sizes are limited and a wait list will be formed once classes are full.

 

The half day program serves children ages 3 through 5 who are not age eligible for kindergarten (i.e., age 5 on or before September 1 of the school year in which the early childhood program is to be implemented) and who are determined by multiple weighted at-risk factors.

 

The full day program serves children ages 3 through 5 who are not age eligible for kindergarten, with priority given to students who are 4 on or before September 1st. Full day students must meet state eligibility requirements for enrollment.  Placement will be determined by the district based on a weighted needs assessment.

 

Program meeting times:

Morning Class:     8:25 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. (morning students are eligible to

                                       attend breakfast at 8:00 a.m. in the cafeteria)

Afternoon Class:  12:35 p.m. - 3:25 p.m.

Full Day Class:       8:00 a.m. -  3:25 p.m.

 

Lindop works closely with families to ensure your child has a quality preschool experience.  We foster children’s love of learning, encourage socialization and individualize instruction to meet the needs of every child.

 

 

 

Screening

 

All students must complete a short developmental screening before enrollment. Children can be screened started at age 2 ½ but are unable to enroll until they turn 3. IMG_6680%20(1).JPG Children will be screened in the areas of speech, language, fine and gross motor development, cognitive skills and vision and hearing.  The purpose of the screening is to:

  • Identify children that might need additional evaluation
  • Answer the concerns parents may have about their child’s development
  • Evaluate if your child is eligible for Lindop’s Prekindergarten Program

 

Appointments are necessary and can be made by contacting the Instructional Leader/Parent Coordinator:
