The Haysville Early Childhood Program provides a Pre-Kindergarten program for children who turn four on or before August 31st and who live in the Haysville school district. In addition, we provide special education services for those children who qualify, once they turn three years old. All children who participate in the Pre-Kindergarten program must complete a Count Your Kid In screening prior to enrollment. For more information on the Pre-Kindergarten program, or to schedule your child for a free screening, please call the Early Childhood office at 316-554-2233.
A day in Pre-K includes engaging circle time activities with songs, rhymes, stories, calendar time, and an introduction to the alphabet, letter sounds, colors, numbers, shapes, and patterning.
Learning centers provide children with opportunities to participate in enrichment activities that build on the skills taught during circle time. The children develop reading, writing and math skills, along with creative expression through art and dramatic play. Center time also allows children opportunities to problem-solve, share and develop positive social skills.
Count Your Kid In Clinics screen children in the developmental areas of language, academic concepts and motor skills. The screening helps with early identification of problems and is required for enrollment in the Haysville Pre-Kindergarten Program. All screenings and evaluation services are free to USD 261 residents. For more information about the Pre-Kindergarten Program or to schedule a screening call, 554-2233.
