TAYLOR COUNTY—The end of school may still be months away, but parents of little ones will soon be able to sign their youngsters up for Pre-K classes for the upcoming school year.
The registration event is a collaboration between Taylor County Schools, Little Feet Day Care and Preschool and the North Central West Virginia Community Action Association’s Head Start program.
Pre-K Coordinator Shannon Lewis shared that they are really excited to continue the collaboration with the organizations and look forward to getting your little ones enrolled for school.
Parents can get a jump start and sign their children up online. According to Lewis, parents may log onto wwwtaylorcountyboe.net to access the application.
For those parents who would like to attend in-person registration, they may do so at any location.
“Pick a day and time and come see us at one of our locations. Registration may be completed at any site, regardless of where your child will attend school,” Lewis voiced. “Make sure you bring your application, along with the other important documentation. We look forward to seeing you!
