The Bucyrus Elementary School is excited to announce that registration for its Five-Star rated Preschool program for the 2019-2020 school year will begin Monday, Feb. 4. Any interested parents or families can contact the Bucyrus Elementary School at 419-562-6089, or visit the school at 245 Woodlawn Avenue, and request a registration packet.

The Bucyrus Elementary Preschool Program has been recognized as a Five-Star program by the Ohio Department of Education for Excellence in Early Childhood Education and offers a highly qualified teaching staff and certified education aides. The program offers a half-day program for 3 and 4-year-old students, as well as a full day program for 4-year-old students who are eligible for kindergarten beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.

Qualifying students may receive occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy during the school day.  Breakfast is offered at no cost to the students. Lunch is free/reduced for students whose families qualify for the Lunch Program eligibility requirements. A sliding fee scale for preschool tuition is available to ensure all families have access to a quality preschool program.

Children entering school for the first time must be screened for hearing, vision, speech and communication, other health or medical conditions and developmental delays. Parents will be notified by the school with screening appointments.  Completed registration forms, including the child’s birth certificate, proof of residency, custody agreement (if applicable), and the Tuition Form with acceptable income documentation, should be submitted prior to the day of the child’s screening.

An electronic version of the Five-Star rated Bucyrus Preschool registration packet is available in the “District Forms” section of the school’s website, www.bucyrusschools.org. However, interested parents are strongly encouraged to obtain a hard copy of the registration packet from the Bucyrus Elementary School office.
