Preschool registration date set

It's time for Preschool

Registration for the 2014-2015 school year for the Rowan County Preschool Center will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014 at the Preschool Center from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Along with the preschool registration, there will also be screenings for children from birth to age three held at the same time.  These screenings will help parents understand more about their child’s growth and development.


The half-day preschool program, which provides both morning and afternoon sessions, serves over 200 students.  The students at the Rowan County Preschool Center learn how to identify numbers and letters, beginning their lessons in math, reading and writing.  Learning to play together cooperatively and following basic directions are part of the preschool curriculum, a curriculum that is standard throughout Kentucky.  The students are even learning basic computer skills with the aid of learning games.  The skills learned in preschool are the building blocks to a successful school experience.


“We provide a developmentally appropriate atmosphere for our little ones here and it’s wonderful to see them grow and learn,” said Shirley Anderson, director of the Rowan County Preschool Center.  “I can’t wait to see what our preschool center has for the future.”


Boys or girls whose 4th birthday falls on or before October 1, 2014 are eligible for preschool for the 2014-2015 school year. All three year old students who have a disability are eligible to attend the Rowan County Preschool Center.  On the day of registration, parents MUST bring in the following documentation:


  1. A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate
