Just Kids, located at the Kellum Street School, is offering limited scholarships for general education children residing within the Lindenhurst School District to attend their preschool program beginning September 2016. Three-year-old classes will meet either from 8:30-11 a.m. (morning session) or from 12-2:30 p.m. (afternoon session). Four-year-old classes will be held during those time periods as well, however, there will also be a full-day 4-year-old program from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Please note that snacks/lunch will NOT be provided to the students and will be the responsibility of the parents. Parents must also provide transportation. Proof of residency must be provided to Just Kids upon acceptance into the program.
Each class will consist of 18 students: nine general education and nine special education. One general education teacher and one special education teacher will co-teach classes, with an aide in each classroom. The program utilizes the Creative Curriculum that emphasizes academic readiness skills and social skills.
Students entering the program in September 2016 must reach the age(s) of 3 or 4 by Dec. 1, 2016. Parents must provide birth certificate and proof of residency, and all students need a physical exam prior to beginning the program. A lottery will be held to select the students to be offered scholarships. If your child is receiving special education services, he/she is not eligible for this scholarship.
The lottery is NOT conducted on a first come, first serve basis.
