JCC Preschool Applications
January 11, 2021
The Johnson Country Central Preschool Program will be accepting applications starting February 1st for the 2021-22 school year.
It is time to begin thinking about the 2021-2022 preschool academic year. We know you are your child’s first and most important teacher, and we would love to join you in the education of your young learner.
Our focus is to provide learning opportunities for those students who will be entering kindergarten the following year. Therefore, the majority of our enrollment will be filled by prekindergarten students. Prekindergarten is defined as a child who will be four years of age on or before July 31, 2021. A three-year-old is defined as a child who will be three years of age on or before July 31, 2021. Being potty trained is a requirement of the program. We offer a full-day program for prekindergarten students in Tecumseh and Cook. Three-year-olds will join the morning of the full-day program. Preschool is in session Tuesday through Friday.
The preschool schedule encompasses discovery through active involvement. “The Creative Curriculum” program is implemented. Activities, materials, and equipment reflect and respect the diversity of race and multiculturalism and the physical and mental abilities of all children.
There is no tuition fee for preschool. However, breakfast and/or lunch fees will be charged when applicable. An application for free and reduced meals will be offered at orientation. Transportation will be provided between sites as well as to and from licensed child care providers within close geographic proximity of the attending site at no cost.
Enrollment will be filled according to the following criteria: Rule 11 guidelines, students currently enrolled in our program, and the date an application is received. If interested in the preschool program, please complete the electronic application which is available beginning February 1, 2021 on the school website. If you would prefer a paper copy please contact the elementary office.
Contact will be made by March 20, 2021 regarding enrollment for the 2021-22 school year. An orientation will be held in August. Please bring the following to orientation: up-to-date immunization records and state-issued birth certificate. If you have any questions or if you would like to set up a visit, please call the elementary office to make arrangements: 402-335-3320.
