B-P accepting pre-K and kindergarten registrations for 2017-18

The Learning Community at Broadalbin-Perth is accepting registrations for pre-K and kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year now through May 31. Parents who would like to register their child for school should call The Learning Community office at 954-2650.

Any child who will be 5 years old on or before Dec. 1, 2017, is eligible to attend kindergarten during the 2017-18 school year. Children who will be 4 years old on or before Dec. 1, 2017, are eligible to attend pre-K.

The kindergarten registration process includes a screening of your child in the areas of basic concepts, language and motor skills. The entire screening process takes approximately one hour.

Broadalbin-Perth offers full- and half-day program options for pre-kindergarten students. If more students register for pre-K than the district has available slots, a lottery to fill available slots will be held June 1. District transportation to and from school is available for full-day pre-K students.

Children in Broadalbin-Perth’s full-day pre-K and kindergarten programs may also participate in the school’s before- and after-school childcare programs. For more information about B-P’s pre-K program, including important dates, visit the pre-K page on the district website.
