The Twinsburg City School District is pleased to announce the expansion of its preschool opportunities. Beginning in August 2018, Wilcox Primary School will add a Kindergarten Preparatory Program (KPP) which will provide a high quality, economical preschool option to families of the Twinsburg City School District.
For the 2018-2019 school year, preschool options at Wilcox will include the current Integrated Preschool Program (IPP) and the new, Kindergarten Preparatory Program (KPP). The Kindergarten Preparatory Program is for students who are at least four years old by August 1, 2018 and not beginning kindergarten in the 2018-2019 school year. The KPP will be a 5-half day a week program with sessions in the morning or afternoon. It will provide a rich pre-academic and social-emotional foundation for all who are age eligible. Each class will serve approximately 16 students and be housed at Wilcox Primary School with a teacher and classroom Instructional Assistant.
The Kindergarten Preparatory Program will follow the same curriculum as the Integrated Preschool Program, however, the teachers will use a project-based approach as the method in which students will learn the curriculum. A project-based approach encourages developmentally appropriate skills and prepares students for the expectations of tomorrow’s learners.
Although the Kindergarten Preparatory Program is an extension of the Twinsburg City School District’s current 5-Star Step Up To Quality rated program, it will offer some differences such as meeting five half-days, exploring art, music, and physical education within their classrooms, themed field trips, and a project–based learning environment that fosters student inquiry and engagement.
Selecting and enrolling strong typically developing peer models for the Integrated Preschool Program
will continue to be the focus for the Twinsburg City School District. These openings will be filled first. Kindergarten Preparatory Program
annual tuition is $1,875 (subject to change) and scholarship opportunities based on financial need may be available for families who qualify for the Kindergarten Preparatory Program
only. Applications can be found and completed online through the Wilcox Primary School webpage at http://www.twinsburg.k12.oh.us/wilcox_home.aspx
or by visiting the Wilcox Primary School office during the school day from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Applications will be accepted through June 1, 2018 for the following school year.
