Pre-K Registration Information

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.
