Garrard County Preschool and Kentucky River Foothills Head Start work collaboratively to provide excellent preschool services to all elilgible Garrard County Children. It is our plan to provide full day preschool for children enrolled during the 18-19 school year. The Preschool day will begin at 7:25 and will end at 2:45.
ENROLLMENT: Screening will be conducted for the 18-19 school year on May 4 and 11. To sign your child up for a screening time, please contact Mary Benton at 859-792-3018 Ext 1015.
Then enrollment forms are available here on this page. You can obtain a hard copy of the form from Mary Benton.
When you come to screening, please bring the following documents:
Birth Certificate, Physical Exam, Immunization
Eye Exam (not screening), Dental Exam
Preschool eligibility is determined based on income. A child is not considered registered until we have proof of income.
The best proof of income is your W-2 form. Other acceptable forms of proof of income include: Income Tax Form 1040, Foster Care Documentation, TANF documentation (K-Tap Letter), SSI documentation, Pay stub or pay envelopes, written statements from employers, or unemployement documentation.
The district does allow for a limited number of ineligible students to pay tuition and attend preschool. This is based on the school having slots available. Spots available will be awarded on a first come-first served basis. A child is not considered registered until proof of income has been provided.
