The Davenport Community School District made the following announcement:

The Davenport Community Schools is offering 10 hours of pre-school services per week to families who have a child who will be 4 years old on or before September 15, 2013. There is no charge to families. The child must be an Iowa resident, but does not have to live within the Davenport school district boundaries. There are no income guidelines for participation. Eligible four-year-olds who are going to a daycare provider can receive free transportation to and from their daycare provider to enable them to attend the two-hour daily preschool program.

Preschool has become increasingly important to ensure that all children have certain basic skills as they enter kindergarten. The program will be 10 hours per week (2 hours each day, Monday-Friday). Students will take part in research-based literacy and math activities; learning upper/lower case letters, shapes, patterns and colors; experiences designed to help children with self-regulation; and play activities that promote make-believe and problem-solving skills.

For more information please contact Dianna Saelens, Pre-K Instructional Specialist, Davenport Community Schools, 322-7649.
