The 2021-2022 Preschool application is ready to pick up at the preschool office.
Parents can pick up a printed copy at the preschool office at 1000 South Arkansas, also known as the "old Gardner Junior High" building. Enter from the parking lot on 10th Street; there is a sign beside the door.
The Russellville School District Preschool program is a full day of high-quality preschool (Level 3 AR Better Beginnings).
The program includes special needs services and the school district child nutrition program on-site.
The curriculum used in the preschool program is aligned to the RSD K-12 curriculum and is taught by teachers fully licensed in Early Childhood Education.
Assistants in the room with the teachers are licensed or highly qualified, with the maximum staff to student ratio of 1-to-10. Students enrolled in the preschool program will have the same school year and school day as the rest of the district.
All classrooms are located on RSD K-4 campuses with a full-time registered nurse and safe room on-site.
To be eligible, students must be 3 or 4 years old by August 1.
Openings are available at all levels, including a no-cost level (eligibility of program qualifications), a sliding fee scale level, and a full fee level.
Here is a fun sensory (and writing!) preschool activity - you might have the materials on hand: Spread a little shaving cream on the table, and encourage writing letters, a name, or just drawing. This one has it all: it cleans the table and smells great as bonuses! Supervision needed.
