2023-24 Preschool

En español

This year all students enroll for preschool using the same set of questions regardless of age or preferred site or time. The program administrators will then create a contract and place your child at a specific site/time based on your responses to the enrollment questionnaire.


If you are a current Preschool or ECFE family who filled out the Priority Registration form, a contract will be created for you, you do NOT need to create another contract.


Bloomington Preschool is committed to preparing your child for success in kindergarten and beyond!

Starting preschool is an exciting milestone in your child's life. 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. Bloomington Preschool classes are for 3 and 4 year-olds. 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 Oak Grove, Valley View, and Washburn Elementary. To receive busing to Oak Grove, Valley View, and Washburn you MUST live or have a daycare address in that school's enrollment area. To receive busing to Pond Center you must live or have daycare address in the Indian Mounds or Poplar Bridge enrollment area.

We offer Preschool for Three's 2 days per week (Tuesdays & Thursdays) or 3 days per week (Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays) for 2.5 hours at Pond and Southwood Centers.
