Early Bird Enrollment for Pre-K will begin on Feb. 26
Broken Arrow Public Schools (BAPS) is proud to have four Early Childhood Development Centers (ECC), including Creekwood, Aspen Creek, Park Lane and Arrow Springs that give students a place to embark upon new adventures in a classroom environment. All children who turn four years old by Sept. 1 are eligible for enrollment as a 2018-19 Pre-K student. Placement will be dependent on geographic boundaries for each ECC and site availability. Please note that transportation to and from the ECCs is the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian.
For BAPS’ 2018-19 Pre-K program, there will be an “Early Bird” enrollment opportunity Feb. 26 – March 13 for all children who turn four years old by Sept. 1. Otherwise, general Pre-K enrollment opens back up May 1. “Early Bird” enrollment allows the district to evaluate site availability.
Starting this year, Pre-K enrollment for the 2018-19 school year will be offered online without having to visit the Enrollment Center if required documents are uploaded correctly. If the required documents are unable to be uploaded after completing the online enrollment information, a visit to the Enrollment Center will be required. Computers and assistance will be available Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Enrollment Center, located at 210 N. Main St.
“Our program is designed to be a collaborative effort involving parents, students and teachers, and by working as a team, I have no doubt that we will be successful in our mission to create a foundation for life-long learning in our youngest Broken Arrow Tigers,” Executive Director of Elementary Education Jennifer Peterson said.
Each ECC is equipped with early childhood certified teachers and teaching aides who educate no more than 20 students per classroom. Through activities centered on reading, writing, math, art and music, students begin developing early reasoning and problem solving skills – all of which support the district’s mantra of Literacy, Engagement and, eventually, Graduation.
“Full-day Pre-K is a tremendous gift to our community,” said Park Lane ECC Principal Barbara Jones. “We believe this program sets the stage for student success at Broken Arrow Public Schools and beyond.”
