Early Childhood Education

Learning begins long before a child enters Kindergarten. Healthy children with involved families and supportive communities enter kindergarten ready to succeed!

The purpose of the USD 428 Preschool/Kindergarten Pre-Enrollment Information Fair is to coordinate services of local child-based community organizations, childcare providers, and pre-schools in an effort to help ensure successful transitions of children from early childhood settings into kindergarten. Families will have the opportunity to pre-enroll their child in Kindergarten, as well as learn about the many Early Childhood opportunities that are provided in our community.
