It is our intent to provide quality instruction to as many preschool aged children as possible so that our students can be ready for kindergarten. We want every preschool aged parent or guardian to be aware of the choices for quality programs available in Ascension Parish Schools at this time. All Pre-K classes in our schools, regardless of the funding source, follow the Common Core State Standards for Early Childhood. At this time the available programs are funded through special state and federal grants; therefore, there are specific qualifying rules and limited spots available. To apply for our preschool programs click the following link for the Ascension Parish Early Childhood website http://www.ascensionearlychildhood.org/website/default.aspx
- Head Start: In order for a student to qualify for Head Start the household income must meet specific requirements. Students are accepted into Head Start at three and four years old with a limited number of classes available. It is possible for a student to attend a Head Start class out of their attendance zone.
- Early Childhood Classes: These classes require that the family income meet the qualification for free/reduced lunch as determined by the state. Due to the limited number of spots, students are screened at the beginning of the year to determine academic need. All students must be four years old. Students must be in the attendance zone where there is an available Pre K class.
- Inclusion Early Childhood Classes: These classes are composed of regular education and special education students. The special education students have identified disabilities and regular education students are included as non-disabled peers. Students must also meet the requirements for free/reduced lunch and must be four years old. The child may or may not reside in the attendance zone.
