|If my child does not qualify for no-fee Pre-K, what are my options?|
Lansing School District does not currently offer a "no fee" based general education preschool. Fee based PreK 4 is available for district staff. Wait lists for the 21-22 school year are in process.
The Lansing School District does, however, offer a peer modeling program in its special education early childhood classrooms. Students must go through the child find screening to be considered for the peer-model program. There is a monthly cost. A calendar for Child Find can be found here.
