Realizing the importance of early childhood education, Kokomo Schools provides children with the opportunity to become immersed in a world of inquiry, exploration, and discovery. Research supports early childhood education and emphasizes the importance of introducing young children to a literacy-rich environment in language arts and math. The development of social skills and collaborative problem solving help young children learn how to work together in the classroom environment.

Kokomo’s preschool programs serve 3 and 4-year-old students in preparation for full-day kindergarten. Children entering the community preschool program must be 3 and/or 4 by August 1, 2021. Half-day community preschool programs at Bon Air, Boulevard, Elwood Haynes, Lafayette Park, Pettit Park, and Sycamore are open to 3 and 4 year olds, while full-day preschool programs at Boulevard, Elwood Haynes, Lafayette Park, Pettit Park, and Sycamore are available only to 4 year olds.

Also, parents, please remember to rank your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices on the application. All applicants will be considered. Selection will be based on space availability for all schools, as well as entrance (screening) requirements for the Outdoor Learning program at Boulevard. Parent Choice Applications are due by March 26, 2021.
