Enroll Your 3- Or 4-Year Old In Dorchester Preschool Now
Did you know that 46% of Nebraska's kindergarten teachers say that half of their students are not prepared to learn in the classroom?
Did you know that much of a child's most critical learning occurs in the first five years of his or her life? In fact, as much as 90% of the brain's core structure is formed by age 5.
Based on several socio-economic factors, it's estimated that 41% Nebraska kids ages 0-5 are at risk of failing in school, as society evolves and becomes less family friendly. In Saline County, that number is 53%.
What can you do about it?
One solution is to enroll your child in Dorchester Preschool, which is now taking applications for enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year.
Dorchester Preschool is open to all children who will have reached age 3 by Sept. 1 -- and for kids 4 years old who plan to attend kindergarten next fall.
The preschool classes are held three days a week: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The 3-year-old morning class will start the same time as K-12 (at 8:10 a.m.) and dismiss at 11:15 a.m.
The 4-year-old class (those who will be in kindergarten next year) is in the afternoon, beginning at 12:30 p.m. and dismissing at the end of K-12 school day.
To enroll, call the Dorchester Preschool director, Doris Broz-Clauss, at (402) 946-2066 -- or at her home at (402) 821-2547.
Let's make sure all Dorchester kids succeed -- now and in the future.
