2018 FDCSD preschool registration is open

Preschool registration for the 2018-19 school year opens today at the Fort Dodge Community School District.

To be eligible to attend preschool in the fall of 2018, children must be four years old by Sept. 15, 2018.

Research shows that children can gain a variety of skills by attending preschool and it helps prepare them for kindergarten. Students learn to follow directions and work cooperatively with each other.

They are exposed to letters, numbers, shapes, colors and more.

Preschool students learn how to socialize, share and get along with other children. In addition, they gain a sense of self, self-control and build their confidence in themselves and what they can do.

To register a child for preschool at Riverside Early Learning Center, please visit the FDCSD Central Administration Building, 104 South 17th Street, or call 574-5679.
