Kokomo School Corporation Preschool
Inquiry, Exploration, and Discovery
Boulevard Elwood Haynes Lafayette Park Pettit Park
Kokomo School Corporation realizes the importance of early childhood education and providing our children with the opportunity to become immersed in a world of inquiry, exploration, and discovery at an early age as they prepare for school readiness. Research supports early childhood education and emphasizes the importance of introducing young children to a literature rich environment supported with music and movement, an introduction to numeracy, patterns, shapes, social interactions, and problem solving.
Our preschool program works collaboratively with Head Start to serve three and four year old students in preparation for full day kindergarten readiness. Families who are interested in the preschool program should check first to see if they qualify for full service programming through Head Start at Darrough Chapel. Full service through Head Start includes transportation for full day programs.
The Kokomo School Corporation Preschool located at Boulevard, Lafayette Park, Elwood Haynes, and Pettit Park is federally funded for the half day program which is tuition free to students living in the Kokomo School Corporation attendance area. Full day preschool is available with a family co-pay (tuition) option at Elwood Haynes and Lafayette Park. Families must provide transportation for both full day and half day programming at all sites.
