Our Program:

The Woodford County Preschool provides half-day (3 hour) preschool classes four days a week with classrooms in all 4 of the Woodford County elementary schools.. Preschool classes are held Monday-Thursday. Friday is utilized for teacher planning, home visits, parent teacher conferences, and staff training.

The preschool program is provided free to 3 and 4 year old children who live in Woodford County and have been identified as having a developmental delay. The program is also  provided free for children who will turn 4 years old by August 1 of the current school year and meet income guidelines. Transportation will be provided free to children who have delays or meet income guidelines. Meals will be provided free or at a reduced price to children who qualify under income guidelines. Woodford County also offers a fee-paying option for parents whose children do not meet eligibility for free preschool services, but want their children to have a high quality and well-rounded preschool experience. Fee paying slots are limited in number and assigned on a first-come first served basis after eligible children have been placed. 


In addition to the half-day preschool program, Woodford County Schools offers a wrap-around childcare program at Simmons Elementary, called the Preschool Extended Program (PEP), for parents who desire this service. However, space is limited, and spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. If the program is at capacity, a waiting list is maintained.
