Applications Now Being Accepted for Fall Half-Day Preschool Programs

Beginning in April 2017, our Eureka City Schools Preschool programs will begin accepting applications for the 2017-18 school-year half day state preschool programs. Winzler is recognized nationally for providing an excellent, play-based preschool education. Winzler is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

The half day, school-year preschool programs follow the same school calendar as the Eureka City Schools elementary schools. Eureka City Schools operates two state preschool locations: the Winzler Children’s Center main location at 719 Creighton Street and Lafayette Preschool at Lafayette Elementary School, 3100 Park Street. Our half day school-year programs currently operate from 8:45 am-12:30 pm at Winzler and from 8:00 am-11:15 pm at Lafayette.  

All ECS preschool classrooms are staff with caring, state qualified teachers and operate with an 8:1 adult to student ratio. Our preschools offer a beautiful, newly remodeled playground and classrooms. Preschool children ages 3-5 years old are welcome. (**Students must turn three on or before September first and be potty trained.) The State of California sets priorities for enrollment; please call the preschool to inquire. Additionally, income eligible families may receive subsidized or no cost care and meals are served at no additional cost. Please call the school for more information at 441-2498.
