We were scheduled to have a Waukee Preschool Orientation back in May; however, with our current situation we are not able to meet in person.  Therefore, the preschool team has put together a virtual presentation as a replacement to the in-person orientation.  At this time, I invite you to click on this link and learn just a little bit more about Waukee’s preschool and what you can expect for the 2020-21 school year.

Yes – with the exception of those who cannot due to medical or other reasons. Mask protocols are outlined in the district’s Return to Learn Plan

No. Parents are expected to make their own travel arrangements.

Even with an online component to our preschool, class sizes will remain the same as in-person learning. Vacant spots will be filled from the waitlisted applications that have already been submitted.
