Enrollment for four-year-olds to join Polk County Schools Preschool Program is currently open for the 2019-2019 school year.

Polk County Schools operates preschool programs at each of its four elementary schools, offering students in each of our communities the opportunity for a wonderful educational beginning.

Through the use of the research-based High Scope curriculum, teachers allow children to initiate active learning experiences in their area of interest. Children learn by doing, by working with hands-on materials and carrying out projects of their own choosing. The High Scope approach encompasses all aspects of a child’s emerging intellectual, physical, social and emotional skills and abilities.

Services are also available for children with special needs such as speech and developmental disabilities. Polk County Schools follow stringent Head Start Performance standards and NC PreK guidelines. All teachers are certified by North Carolina to teach preschool.
