Scott County Schools will begin a pilot program in August 2015 to provide tuition-based preschool services. District administrators have spent several years researching the feasibility of tuition-based preschool in response to requests from families interested in enrolling their children at Scott County Preschool. This pilot program would expand preschool services to meet a growing community need. High quality preschool education facilitated by certified teachers will prepare young learners for the start of kindergarten and lay a strong foundation for education in Scott County.
Preschool in Kentucky is available free of charge for three and four year old children who meet eligibility criteria. Scott County Preschool currently provides services for three year olds with a diagnosed disability or developmental delay and four year olds who have a diagnosed disability/delay or meet the established criteria for income based enrollment. Currently, Scott County Preschool has 328 students enrolled. For the 2015-2016 school year, 30-45 spaces will be available for tuition-based preschool.
Scott County Preschool will take applications in late February/early March 2015. The Scott County Board of Education approved tuition and registration costs for preschool: $3000 per year with a non-refundable registration fee of $200 for enrolled students to be applied to total yearly tuition. Scott County Preschool offers half-day sessions, morning and afternoon, available Monday-Thursday. The approved tuition is comparable to other preschool services in the Georgetown/Scott County community.
