2022-23 Preschool for Four's

Registration for the 2022-2023 school year Preschool for Four's program started on JANUARY 10TH, 2022. Currently the Southwood Center (Both Morning and Afternoon classes), Indian Mounds (Morning Class), Oak Grove Elementary (Morning class) and Valley View Elementary (Morning class) are FULL and have a WAITLIST. If more than one class would work for your child, please list a second or third option on your contract, to improve your chances of getting an available seat. We fill seats on a first come, first served basis with families that have completed all of the required paperwork and enrollments. Children must be FOUR years old as of September 1st, 2022 in order to attend Preschool for Four's.

Starting preschool is an exciting milestone in your child’s life. The Bloomington preschool program is committed to preparing your child for success in kindergarten and beyond! Our licensed teachers set up classrooms to help children discover a love for learning while working on social emotional skills that will help get them ready for lifelong learning.

The year before kindergarten is an exciting time, as your child’s abilities and independence grow by leaps and bounds! Preschool classes focus on providing a foundation for lifelong learning and to help create social relationships. Children have both large and small group learning experiences in literacy, writing, math, music, art, and science.

We offer Preschool for Four's 5 days per week (M-F) for 2.5 hours at Pond and Southwood Centers and for those who live in the attendance areas of Indian Mounds, Oak Grove, Valley View, and Washburn Elementary.
