Coming soon – Preschool Registration

Every year I am surprised by how quickly it is time to plan for a new school year.  As the children, parents and staff finally have had enough time to develop into a classroom community, we challenge families to think about planning for their next school experience months in advance.  How many days a week will be best?  Which days?  Will mornings or afternoons work for our family?

Registration for three of Hopkins early childhood programs are fast approaching. The full day, full week year before kindergarten program, Stepping Stones, will begin with a  lottery for Hopkins School District residents and currently open-enrolled families.  This lottery will occur at noon on Friday, February 11.  The remaining openings are filled on a first come, first served basis beginning February 14.

This year, with the addition of a new location developed to serve the western most portion of our school district, the part-day, part-week program for 3 to 5 year olds, Kaleidoscope Preschool, begins their registration by allowing families whose attendance area is Glen Lake to register first for the new classes at the same time that families in our current classes can re-register for the new school year.  Priority for the Glen Lake classes will go to Glen Lake residents and currently open-enrolled Glen Lake families.  Applications should be in the Harley Hopkins office by noon on February 25.   All other families may turn in their registrations by noon on March 11 to be the new family lottery.

Planning for summer too?  Kaleidoscope Preschool Summer Adventures offers classes for children 3 to 5 years and runs two half-days a week for six weeks from June 6 to July 14.  The registration lottery will be held on Friday, April 8 at noon.

All programs continue to accept registrations throughout the year for any available opening.
