2024-25 Preschool (starts Fall 2024)


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.

Again 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.

We offer Preschool for Four's 5 days per week (M-F) for 2.5 hours at Pond and Southwood Centers and Oak Grove Elementary, Valley View Elementary, 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. For students who live in any other Elementary enrollment area, the busing goes as follows:

Four year old children who live or have a daycare address in Valley View Middle School and Oak Grove Middle School enrollment areas are able to bus to Pond Center.

Four year old children who live or have a daycare address in Olson Middle School enrollment area are able to bus to Southwood Center.

Visit to confirm your enrollment area.

Children must be 4 years old as of September 1st, 2023 to attend Preschool for Four's.

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. Parents/guardians must provide transportation to and from school, unless a child is on an IEP and qualifies for Early Childhood Special Education busing.

Children must be 3 years old as of September 1st, 2023 to attend Preschool for Three's.

We offer Preschool SAFARI classes for three and four year olds (mixed age) at Pond Center, Normandale Hills, and Westwood for those families looking for before or after class daycare. Please remember to also create a Preschool SAFARI CARE contract here: For more information Preschool SAFARI CARE, email

Children must be 3 years old as of September 1st, 2023 to attend Preschool SAFARI.

Children who are 5 years old as of September 1st, 2023 may potentially attend a 4 year old preschool class, BUT because they are eligible for Kindergarten, they are ineligible for the Sliding Fee Scale and will need to pay the full price Level 4 tuition and fees.

In order to complete the preschool registration checklist we also need you to register with the school district as a student and complete an Early Childhood Screening. These steps MUST be completed before your contract could be approved and your child placed in a class.
