Families will be given an option to attend half days. Once the option is given the schedule will need to be followed for the year. Preschool is not mandatory.

Do I need to do this now or can I wait till August?
We strongly suggest that if you are thinking about enrolling your child, you do so and we will work with you to answer your questions. The earlier we can anticipate the number of students we have will give us the opportunity to plan ahead.
Do you provide transportation?
Transportation is provided to and from school.
Our 5 Star rated Preschool program offers an engaging curriculum which includes: Smart Boards and iPads, Literacy Enriched Environment, Family Literacy Program, Researched-based reading and math program, Differentiated Instruction, Related Arts Classes (art, computer, music, & P.E.), DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills Program), and Educational Field Trips. The Early Childhood teachers and Aides continue to participate in professional development to enhance their knowledge of programs and increase their skills which benefit our students.
Throughout the year many questions arise about the rules and procedures in our program. We have developed a handbook of general information to help answer those questions and to help parents and students who are new to Edison become acquainted with our preschool. You will receive a handbook at orientation.
