The Classroom Program

The Lawndale School District Preschool Program is committed to providing a high quality program in a safe, well-supervised environment. The preschool program is a 3-hour program for children 3-5 years old.

The program is designed to strengthen and encourage the development of not only the children enrolled in the program but also the family as a whole. Children will be offered a wide range of experiences and an opportunity to develop social, emotional, and cognitive skills. Parents or guardians will be encouraged to become involved in the educational process of their child through a variety of opportunities.

Children who are age eligible for the program, but who cannot be accommodated because of a lack of space, will be placed on a waiting list. As openings develop, parents will be selected according to priorities set by the State Department of Education. First priority is for children who are receiving services from the local welfare department. Second priority is given to eligible four and five -year-olds. Families with the lowest adjusted monthly income shall be admitted first. Third priority is given to eligible three-year-olds, again with priority given to the families with the lowest adjusted monthly income.

Parent Engagement

Parent conferences are held twice a year to share your child's strengths from the Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP) child assessment and the Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQ).

We regularly host parent education workshops and encourage you to get involved and join our Parent Advisory Council.
