 Preschool is a part of Kanawha County Schools and there is no cost to parents. Students who are four-years-old on or before June 30, 2022, are placed in school-based sites as well as sites in collaboration with the county. Kanawha County preschools feature state-approved curriculum, small class sizes (not exceeding 20 students), and transportation to and from school-based sites.

In every classroom, there are three ways your child may be enrolled:

  • Special Needs – these children are identified by the Kanawha County Schools Special Education Department and may be three, four or five years old with an IEP.
  • Head Start – priority is given to children who are income eligible according to Head Start guidelines.
  • Pre-K – the child must be four years old on or before June 30, 2022. Children are placed into school-based classrooms or collaborative classrooms according to the needs of the family and time of application.

    The following documents are needed for a complete preschool enrollment application:

  • state certified birth certificate obtained from Vital Statistics, not County or Hospital  
  • current immunization record
  • current physical exam/well child check – must have been completed within one year of the date of application
  • current dental exam – must have been completed within one year of the date of application
  • documentation if the child is in the custody of someone other than the parent or homeless
  • income verification – paystub, W2, TANF or SSI letter, etc. 
  • and, a completed online application (be sure to select the 2022-2023 application)
