Preschool  Update for 2024-25:

Please be advised of the following options to our preschool classes and policies for the upcoming school year:

1. Preschool Class Schedule:

  • All preschool classes will run Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • There will no longer be limited day or time options as offered previously.

2. Early Intervention Services:

  • If a child is receiving Early Intervention Services and their Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) dictates a half-day schedule, we will offer a Monday to Friday, 8 – 11 a.m. option.

3. Early Drop-Off:

  • There will no longer be a fee for early drop-off. All programs will follow the building protocol for drop-off times. For example, if Yaquina View Elementary allows students to be dropped off at 7:45  a.m. and Crestview Heights School starts at 7:30a.m., preschool families will follow those respective times without incurring any additional fees.

4. Extended Care:

  • Extended care will still be offered Monday through Friday, from 3 – 4 p.m. This option is available on a monthly basis, meaning families can choose to use it or not, but will pay for the entire month.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we implement these changes to better serve our preschool community. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our preschool administration. Thank you for your continued support!

Starting this fall, we will have full day preschool classrooms in Oceanlake Elementary, Yaquina View as well as our existing programs at Toledo High School and Crestview Elementary.
