The Virginia Preschool Initiative began in 1994 as a part of a program to improve educational achievement. This initiative serves at-risk four year olds who are not being served by Head Start. Students must be four years old by September 30 in order to be eligible for the program.
Preschool programs are located in nine elementary schools in Montgomery County:
Each preschool classroom serves no more than 18 four year olds with one teacher and one highly qualified aide providing a staff/child ratio of 9:1. Classes meet on all school days and students ride the school bus with other elementary students. Students must attend the preschool in the elementary school where they will attend kindergarten.
The Virginia Preschool Initiative emphasizes collaboration among the home, school and community to provide a quality program which fosters the development of the whole child. A safe, nurturing environment is provided at each location which promotes active exploration, curiosity, and an excitement for learning.
The links to the right will provide additional resources for parents and teachers interested in more information about the preschool program.
