Colonial Heights Public Schools is pleased to offer a prekindergarten program for four year old children.  The goal of the program is to provide a healthy learning environment for children whose social or economic conditions may place them at risk for poor school performance.  Selection of students will be based on family need according to program guidelines for the Virginia Preschool Initiative.  Enrollment priority will be given to children with the greatest number of factors impacting their environment.  Factors considered include:

  • Income level of the parent/legal guardian
  • Education level of the parents
  • Child Characteristics (example – non-English speakers)
  • Family Stress (example – parent deceased)

The class will be housed at Lakeview Elementary School, 401 Taswell Avenue and the other at North Elementary School, 3201 Dale Avenue.  These classes will serve children from each of the three elementary school attendance zones and will operate on the same calendar and school schedule as the elementary schools.  Each class will be limited to 18 students. Children residing in Lakeview and North attendance zones will be placed in their home elementary school as program space allows.

This is not a first-come, first-served program.  To be eligible for the program, children must be legal residents of Colonial Heights and be four years-of-age by September 30, 2018Applications must be filled out completely.  Proof of residency and financial information must be attached in order for the applicant to be considered for the program.  Families will be required to attend meetings and field trips with their child in this program.
