Preschool/Head Start county-wide registration for the 2013-2014 school year will take place from 9:00 to 3:00 at the Gateway Head Start Building (Kendall Springs Road) on Friday, April 19, 2013.
Income eligible children that will be four-years-old by October 1st can attend Preschool/Head Start. Identified disabled three-year-olds are eligible for Preschool/Head Start services as of their third birthday.
A small number of four-year-olds may be enrolled by paying tuition. This number is determined by space available upon enrollment of all income eligible and disabled students.
At registration, each child will be provided with free hearing and developmental screenings. These screenings take approximately an hour to complete so parents should make sure that their children have been fed and have rested properly prior to registration.
Please bring the following pieces of information to registration:
your child’s official birth certificate
your child’s updated immunization record
proof of income (W-2s or last year’s tax forms preferred)
current physical examination (within last 6 months)
eye examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist
If the above pieces of information are not available on registration day, they MUST be provided before the child can enter Preschool or Head Start. For more information, please call Christina Grace or Lisa Stewart at 606- 674-6314 or Patricia McClure or Michelle Stanley at 606-674-2766.
Screenings also will be available for children Birth to 3 years on the Preschool and Head Start Screening Day. Screening is a way to understand more about a child’s growth and development. If you have a child or children between Birth and 5 years of age and want to know if he/she is reaching important milestones, we encourage you to participate in the Bath County Screening Day.
