Pre-k

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Good news for Chesterfield parents thinking of pre-K for their children: the district is expanding classes.

Starting in the 2015-2016 academic year, Chesterfield schools will add 144 seats to its prekindergarten classes. That will bring the total number of students in Pre-K classes to 569, across 19 schools.

Spots in pre-K are filled on a selective basis. Children must show an educational need, parents must meet income requirements, and children must be four years old by September 30th to qualify for a seat. The family of the child must also live within the school attendance zone.

If you’re interested in applying for one of the spots, you can find out how to do so on Chesterfield County Schools’ website.
