As Lakota shifts elementary schools, preschool registration open

Registration for Lakota’s tuition-based preschool program will begin on Feb. 1 and run through Feb. 28.

An informational meeting for parents will be held on Feb. 15 at Liberty Early Childhood School from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Staff members will be available to answer questions and to give an overview of the program. They will share the Creative Curriculum and Acelero Adaptation that preschool teachers follow, as well as what the “life in the day of a preschool child” looks like.

With the recently announced transition of two Lakota elementary schools to early childhood schools for the 2018-19 school year, the district is hopeful to have preschool at all of the early childhood buildings, but are still in the planning stages. Placement will be based on attendance zone, but parents may select up to three additional locations as preferences during the application process.

All applications must be received or postmarked by Feb. 28 to be considered for the lottery. The lottery will take place at the beginning of March and notices of admission will be mailed March 12 to all applicants. Applications received after the Feb. 28 deadline will be placed on a waiting list.

For more information, go to or call 513-870-5378. Applications are also available at any of the four current early childhood schools.
