Program Goal:

The Southern Boone County R-I Preschool strives to create a learning environment that empowers preschool children to be confident, successful and lifelong learners. We serve children with a variety of educational needs who benefit from a school experience before they enter Kindergarten.  Children will be selected based on information gathered from the following:

  • Parent Questionnaire
  • Parents as Teachers Screening (if applicable)
  • Input from other relevant sources (daycare providers, special service providers, etc.)

Application Process:

  • Parents must submit the  application (please right click and open in a new tab) by February 26, 2021 .  The application contains information and questions about the child’s general background.  
  • Applications are reviewed by preschool teachers, director and building principal to identify children who meet the preschool program goal.  
  • Students are randomly selected to create a balanced classroom. Enrollment is limited and some students may be placed on a waiting list.  If a child is not selected for initial placement in the program, parents will be contacted as positions become available.  
  • All applicants will be notified regarding placement in the program around Mid-March.
