PreK Registration

In an effort to increase access to high-quality early childhood learning opportunities for students prior to entering Kindergarten, the M.S.A.D. No. 75 Board of Directors approved the creation of two PreK classes for the 2018-2019 school year - a total of 32 students.  The program will support students’ physical, social, emotional and academic development so that they become stronger learners, ready for Kindergarten and beyond. This program will be implemented pending approval of the District’s Fiscal Year 2019 budget.


Students must be 4 years old by October 15, 2018.  The program will use the same calendar as grades K-12, will run five days a week, and approximately 6 hours per day.  Transportation is not provided. One class will be at the Williams-Cone School while the other will be at Midcoast Maine Community Action’s Head Start location at Cook’s Corner in Brunswick (this Head Start location already supports some future students in our district, and had the space to add a classroom.) Please read additional details here.


Families from across the district are welcome to apply, beginning a multiple-step process.  These steps will give enrollment priority to students who:

  • Demonstrate need through screening
  • Have not had formal preschool experiences

In addition, enrollment in the Head Start classroom will require federally-established family income levels. If you are unsure about how these will affect your child's prioritization, we encourage you to apply anyway so that we will be able to find out.

 

During the period of May 7 through May 25, 2018, the District will accept applications for PreK via an appointment with Elisa Hawkes in the M.S.A.D. No. 75 Central Office. The application and all materials must be brought to the appointment.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Elisa Hawkes at 207-729-9961 ext. 225, or email to hawkese@link75.org.


Thank you for your interest in the PreK program.
