Woodstock District 200 to open registration for 2017-18 preschool program

WOODSTOCK – Woodstock School District 200 will start accepting applications Friday for its 2017-18 preschool program.

Applications for the program will be accepted through Feb. 24.

District 200 is offering a dual-language program for 4-year-olds along with a tuition-based preschool program. All preschool programs will be taught by Verda Dierzen Early Learning Center’s certified staff.

The dual-language program, which will run five days a week, will accept up to 20 English language learners and up to 20 Spanish language learners. To be considered for this program, a child must be 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2017, and live within the district’s attendance boundaries.

All applicants for the program must also attend a mandatory meeting at the school at 6 p.m. Feb. 16, which will talk about the program, registration requirements, fees and bus transportation.

The tuition-paid program will be open to children of families who reside either in or outside of the district’s boundaries as long as they don’t qualify for the grant-funded program. Families who want to enroll their child in the tuition-free program must first schedule a screening appointment to determine if their child is eligible or not.

For information, call the Verda Dierzen Early Learning Center at 815-338-8883 or visit http://dierzen.woodstockschools.org.
