Welcome to Preschool!!
Welcome to Early Childhood Preschool Program. My name is Emily Norris and I am the Preschool Parent Coordinator and work with families enrolled in our program. Children that are 3-5 years old and that live in the Ottawa Elementary school district are able to enroll in our preschool program. You must attend a preschool screening and meet at-risk criteria through our office or the L.E.A.S.E office. We hold screenings every month. Please contact the Main office to set up a screening at 815-313-3203.
Program description: The program here at Lincoln is a Preschool for All program. We meet Monday-Friday, either morning or afternoon session. Due to safety procedures related to the covid-19 virus, we have changed hours for preschool to accommodate for cleaning. The morning session meets from 8:45-10:45 am and the afternoon session meets 12:00-2:00 pm. We have one section of developmental preschool and 9 sections of blended classrooms. The classrooms have one teacher (type 04 certificate) and one teaching assistant. We offer bussing within the O.E.S. area and collaborate with the area's Head start programs and daycare centers. If you have any questions about our program please contact the preschool office at 815-313-3299. You can also contact me by email at [email protected].
