In conjunction with the Warren County Educational Service Center, Crestview Local School District will once again offer preschool for the 2021-2022 school year! The purpose of the preschool is to provide an enriched learning environment in an integrated setting to children, ages 3-5, by August 1.
Located at Crestview Elementary, classes are held Monday-Thursday and follow Crestview LSD calendar. Half-day sessions are offered either in the morning or afternoon. Current preschool enrollment includes up to 32 students in each session and we are continually adding students throughout the school year. Because children learn best through play, preschool learning takes place in a play-based environment. The preschool curriculum is based on the Early Learning Standards for Ohio so that students will be prepared for kindergarten standards. Preschool activities include student-initiated and teacher-initiated activities that focus on the development of pre-academic, fine motor, gross motor, social/emotional, and language skills. There is a weekly focus on letters, colors, shapes, and numbers. The children have regular opportunities to practice drawing simple shapes, writing the letters of their names, and writing the letter of the week. Speech, occupational, and physical therapy services are provided during preschool hours to qualifying students.
For parents who are interested in enrolling your child in Crestview’s preschool, please call 419-895-1700, extension 17002 to inquire about the registration process. All registrations should be completed prior to preschool screening. Community preschool screenings will be held on March 19, 2021. Information required for registration is: Birth Certificate, current Immunization Record, Custody Papers (if applicable), and Two Proofs of Residency in the Crestview School District. For a complete list of acceptable proofs of residency, visit our website at www.crestviewschools.net, click on “Registration” link. Once the required documents have been presented, you and your child(ren) will be set up in Final Forms, our online enrollment system. You may complete these forms from home or in our office if you don’t have access to a computer at home.
Current preschool parents wishing to re-enrolling their child into the again for the 2021-2022 school year should call registration at 419-895-1700, ext. 17002 for the re-registration process.

Typically developing children must be 3-5 years of age no later than August 1, 2021. Typical children must be fully toilet trained before the first day of classes.
Tuition and Fees:
Tuition of $900 per school year (max) will be assessed in equal monthly installments for all typically developing children on a sliding scale based on gross monthly income. Tuition payments are expected by the 15th of each month regardless if the child does or does not attend school on a regular basis. Non-payment or continued delinquency of payments may result in the removal of your child from preschool services. A classroom fee of $60 will be assessed to all students to cover the cost of supplies, snacks, etc… This fee is payable immediately upon acceptance to the preschool program.
Applications will be accepted at the Crestview Local Schools Central Office beginning February 2021. The medical/physical forms must include vision, hearing, and dental checkups. Do not leave items unaddressed on any of the forms as this will slow the process and may result in loss of placement within the preschool program.
Applications must be received by August 1, 2021. Applications received after the deadline date or when the program has reached full capacity will be placed on a waiting list upon the parent’s request.
Placement in the program will be made as soon as all documents are in your child’s file, including a developmental screening completed by our staff. All district enrollment information must be completed 1 week prior to the start date. No child shall begin school until the enrollment process is fully completed (including physical and dental examinations).
