Preschool Program

Currently, the Sheridan School District offers four preschool classes to children who qualify and who will turn four on or before August 1. These classes are funded through Arkansas Better Chance for School Success and have specific guidelines as to which students qualify for services. This program serves four-year-old children from families with gross income not exceeding 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. These guidelines are mandated by the state government.

Students are taught by early childhood certified teachers who are assisted by a para-educator. Each class serves a maximum of 20 students. Two classes are in East End Elementary School, and two classes are offered at Sheridan Elementary School.

The core quality components of the Preschool Program include six key areas:

  • Low student to teacher ratio
  • Well-qualified & competent staff
  • Professional development
  • Developmental Screening and Child Assessment
  • Meaningful parent and community engagement activities
  • Proven curricula and learning processes which serve as the basis of ABC funding levels.
