KES enrollment options for 2016-2017 Kimball Play and Learn Preschool and Enrichment Program held Registration night Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016. Classes are filling quickly, and with new options this year, families need to be diligent if they have a prefer- ence as to what section they want their preschooler in. In 2015-2016 we launched our 3-1/2 day preschool program and 5 day a week enrichment program. These sections filled very quickly. In response to parent requests, we have decided to launch a 4-1/2 day preschool section in 2016-2017. So, for 2016-2017, parents of 3-year-olds (by Sept. 1, 2016) will have the option of a Monday and Wednesday 8-10:45 a.m. class. Parents of 4- and 5-year-olds (not going to Kindergarten) will have 3 different options. They will be able to choose from a Tuesday and Thursday 8-10:45 a.m. class, a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8-10:45 a.m. class, and a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 12-2:45 p.m. class. Our Enrichment Program is a four star parent aware program that is taught by trained individu- als who are not licensed teachers. They work closely with the pre- school teachers to use the same curriculum and compliment what the children are working on in pre- school. Once again for the 2016- 2017 school year the Enrichment Program will be available Monday -Friday from 8 a.m.-2:45 p.m. for the hours that children are not in preschool. Both programs follow the district calendar. For more information, visit our website at www.kimball.kl2. ran. us~page~3138.
