Press release submitted by Bettendorf Community School District



The Bettendorf Community School District is now accepting preschool applications for the 2013-2014 school year. If your child will be four years old on or before September 15, 2013, he/she is eligible to participate.

Funding provided by the State of Iowa in support of the Statewide Voluntary Preschool Program allows us to place children four years of age in local preschool programs. Families of preschoolers can receive preschool education at no charge for 10 hours per week with parents paying for the balance of the attendance time. The local preschools participating include: Ready Set Grow Preschool, KinderCare Learning Center, Lourdes Preschool, Redeemer Preschool, St. John Vianney Preschool, Rivermont Collegiate, and Skip-A-Long Child Development Services.

Bettendorf Community School District provides preschool classrooms at Grant Wood Elementary School, Mark Twain Elementary School, Neil Armstrong Elementary School, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School. Children that meet economic eligibility criteria are given preference in the BCSD public school preschool classes.
