Registration for 2016-17 three and four year old preschool students will take at La Porte City Elementary School on Monday, May 2, beginning at 7 PM. With the change in preschool funding last year, parents of four year old students won’t have to make any tuition payments in the coming year, though a registration fee of $50 will be due when registering a child. While tuition must still be charged to operate the program for three year olds, the preschool boards in La Porte City and Dysart continue to offer scholarship opportunities for families who qualify. The registration fee for three year old preschoolers is $40 per child.
In La Porte City, preschool classes for four year old students are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with students attending in the morning (8 AM – 11:20 AM) or afternoons (11:50 AM – 3:10 PM). Preschool for three year olds is held on Tuesday and Thursdays, with class time options being 8-10 AM or 10:15 AM – 12:15 PM. Tuition for each three year old preschooler is $80 per month.
Registration for preschool at Dysart-Geneseo Elementary School was held April 11. While Dysart’s preschool program for three year olds is full, there were still openings in the four year old program as this edition of The Progress Review went to press.
