To Register for Kindergarten:

Parents should visit the elementary school their children will attend and complete application forms.

Kindergarten Registration is open to children who will be 5 years old by Oct. 1, 2014. Kindergarten is a full-day program Monday through Friday. Students who are currently attending Hager Preschool will register at the school they will attend in the fall.

Preschool Registration:

Hager Preschool will begin accepting applications March 3-14 for the 2014-15 state-funded KERA preschool/Head Start program. Preschool is available free of charge to children who will be 3 or 4 years old by Oct. 1, 2014, AND whose families meet income eligibility guidelines. This program is also available to 3- and 4-year old children who are determined to have a developmental delay in one or more of the following developmental areas: speech/language, cognition (learning), social skills, or motor development. Preschool is provided Monday-Thursday, 3.5 hour session per day. Tuition openings are also available at the rate of $175 per month or on a sliding fee scale according to documented income. To register, please call 686-1125 to schedule an appointment with a Family Advocate PRIOR to March 3, 2014. Hager Preschool is located at 1701 West 7th Street (located immediately behind Foust Elementary School). Preschool forms are available online but must be completed at the school.

Enrollment forms can be downloaded from the Owensboro Public Schools' Web Site Home Page. Those forms can be filled out online, printed, and taken to the school. Forms will also be available at the school at the time of registration.

What to bring to registration:

Items your child's school will need for new student enrollment include original birth certificate (copies will be made at the school), child's Social Security card (copies will be made at the school), and the following medical records on a Kentucky form only: physical examination record, immunization certificate, vision examination performed by an eye doctor and a dental screening/exam completed after the child's fifth birthday.
