Early Childhood ~ Preschool - Enrollment Information

  • Welcome to Preschool  

    Hopkins County Schools provides a state-funded preschool program at elementary schools throughout the district.  The preschool program is for children four years old whose family income meets the federal "at-risk" criteria or for children three or four years old that have an educational disability or developmental delays. 

    "At-Risk" criteria means your household income is at 160% of the federal poverty guidelines. Children must be 4 years old by August 1st and have a household income at 160% of federal poverty to be considered for the at-risk eligibility criteria.

    All children will receive a developmental screening to determine if there is a potential developmental delay in any area.  If a potential delay is identified, children will receive interventions for the areas of concern.

    All three and four year old children are not eligible for the state-funded preschool program based upon federal and state guidelines.

    To determine if your child is eligible for the preschool program, you may contact Hopkins County Schools Department of Early Childhood at 270-825-6100 ext. 22244.

    Due to the COVID 19 state of emergency, we are providing develolpmental screening to three year olds and four year olds whose household income does not meet eligibilty requirements by appointment only.  If you suspect your child has a delay, please contact our office at 270-825-6000.  All families of four year olds should complete the pre-registration process by following the link below.      

    Beginning Friday, April 24, 2020, we will begin a pre-registration process for any child that will be 4 on or before August 1, 2020.  Please visit the Registration Information Page for more information.
