New Kent County Public Schools is excited to open the application process for our Early Childhood program for the 2022-2023 school year.
New Kent will continue to provide early learning opportunities for students that are eligible for Early Childhood Special Education services, students that qualify for the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI), and role model students.  The purpose of the VPI program is to ensure that all students have access to a high quality preschool education.  Both of the iPOP and VPI programs employ an integrated, evidence based curriculum, highly qualified teachers and are safe, student-centered environments. 
Therefore, the division’s goal is to offer preschool in each of the elementary schools. In the 2022-2023 school year, New Kent County Public Schools will be opening our third elementary school and Early Learning Programs will be located at New Kent Elementary School and Quinton Elementary School. 
Applications and brochures may be accessed from the links below or in each elementary school's main office. If you need assistance completing the application, please contact the registrar at one of the elementary schools to assist in completing it.

Completed applications for preschool should be submitted to the registrar at one of the elementary schools by April 1st, 2022.   We will then begin scheduling screening appointments for potential preschool students.  Applications received after this date will be added to a waiting list for possible openings.  

Our programs have generated a tremendous amount of interest and we can only serve a limited number of students currently. 

Once we have reviewed applications, the school will contact the child's parent to schedule a screening date for each child. These meetings will be conducted one on one with a qualified staff member and will maintain all necessary mitigation measures.   

Thank you so much for your interest in the Early Learning Program at New Kent County Public Schools.  We look forward to meeting with you and your child.
