Newton preschool registration open

Published: Monday, April 8, 2013 11:17 a.m. CDT

Applications are now being accepted for enrollment in the Newton Community Preschool’s programs for 3- and 4-year-old at the Emerson Hough Educational Center located at 700 N. Fourth Ave. E. in Newton.

Parents are invited to complete an application to determine whether their children qualify. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. The 4-year-old program eligibility is based on income.

Applications are available at the Emerson Hough office or on the district website at www.newton.k12.ia.us. Click on the preschool link and then download the document using the preschool application button.

Newton Community Preschool provides two different programs for two different age groups:

• 4-year-old program (students must be four on or before Sept. 15). There is no cost for this program as it is funded by the State of Iowa. However, eligibility is based on income. Complete an application to know if your child will qualify.

• 3-year-old program (students must be three on or before Sept. 15). This program has a monthly tuition of $25. Spaces in this program are more limited as we automatically serve all students identified with special needs.

Bring or mail to Emerson Hough the 2013-2014 application, an updated immunization record, a copy of the child’s birth certificate (hospital copy acceptable and documentation of insurance for the child (if the child has insurance).

Applications will be considered complete once all documents have been received.

Deliver (or mail) applications to the Emerson Hough Educational Center. Direct questions to Site Coordinator Jamie Cranston at cranstonj@newton.k12.ia.us.
