Island preschool now accepting applications
The Melrose Avenue Preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2012-13 school year. All children applying to the preschool must first be screened through the Jamestown Child Outreach Program. Once the application is filed with the child outreach coordinated, an appointment will be scheduled.
Each session is three hours long, with a morning and an afternoon session each day except Friday, when there is a morning session only. Children attend two, three or four days per week, depending on their age. Tuition is based on the number of days a child attends. Because of the size of the classroom, space is limited and children are selected by a random lottery, which will take place during the first week of March.
All applications will be placed in the lottery. Children must be 3 years old to be screened, but if children younger are accepted into the preschool, they must be screened as soon as they turn 3. Children cannot start school without this screening.
The application must be completed and returned to the Melrose Avenue School office by Feb. 28.
Applications can be picked up at the Melrose Avenue School office.
