Neshoba Central has announced registration dates for its pre-kindergarten program  which is located at the Neshoba County School District, Office of Federal Programs/Pre-K building at Valley View.  

Students are screened for enrollment by a pre-kindergarten test.  The program is designed to serve those children with the most academic/developmental needs.  The classes will begin and end to coincide with the regular school term at Neshoba County Schools.  Participating students’ parents will be required to provide transportation to and from the center.  As other students in the school district, pre-k students will be offered breakfasts and lunches by the Neshoba County School District Food Services.

Anyone having a 4-year old child and wishing for the child to be tested for the pre-K program must come to the Office of Federal Programs/Pre-K to register the child between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on weekdays May 7 – 17.  

It is not necessary for your child to be present on the day of registration.  If all registration materials are presented by the child’s guardian(s), an appointment will be assigned for your child to be screened for placement.
