Preschool registration information
Preschool programs are located in all 12 Daviess County Public Schools elementary schools. DCPS recognizes the importance of early childhood education programs. The district is committed to continuous quality improvement for our programs and DCPS educators are dedicated to providing the best learning environment in which children are nurtured, challenged and loved as they develop skills that will help them in kindergarten and beyond.

Preschool is available at all 12 DCPS elementary schools for children who will be 4 years old by Aug. 1 and whose families meet income guidelines; and children age 3 or 4 who are identified with a delay or disability. Preschool is offered in morning and afternoon sessions, Monday through Thursday each week. Head Start is offered to children who will be 3 years old on or before Aug. 1 and who meet Head Start eligibility requirements.

Free screenings are available to all DCPS families with preschool-age children to help determine if there are any educational concerns, learning delays or disabilities.

Fee-based preschool slots are available within DCPS elementary schools for children who do not qualify for free preschool.
