Parents and guardians of students who will be three- to five-years-old on or before Sept. 30, 2018 can apply for a seat in Forest Hills’ preschool program beginning Feb. 19 through Feb. 25.
FHSD uses an online lottery system for acceptance into preschool. The lottery drawing will occur on Feb. 26 to award seats in preschool classes. Parents will be notified by email soon after acceptance into preschool. Once accepted, parents can begin
registration procedures. Parents of students who were drawn in the lottery will have one week to complete registration and pay a tuition deposit of $100. Students who are not drawn in the lottery will be placed on a wait list.
The program operates at Sherwood and Summit elementary schools for all Forest Hills students. Classes are held Monday through Thursday with morning sessions from 9:10 a.m. to 11:55 a.m. and afternoon sessions from 12:55 p.m. to 3:40 p.m.
The curriculum is guided by the Ohio Department of Education’s Early Learning and Development Standards that focus on social-emotional, cognitive, language, literacy and motor development. Daily schedules include group time, snacks, music appreciation, dramatic play, large muscle development and small muscle development.
Parents are responsible for providing transportation.
Individual student goals are embedded within play and daily routines and are facilitated by observant, responsive adults.
The program tuition is $1,800.
