Preschool Registration

2019-2020 Preschool Registration

The Butler County Educational Service Center and Lakota preschool program will have a new home for the 2019-20 school year; the program will move to VanGorden Elementary School in the fall. Two classrooms will remain at Liberty ECS. The decision to consolidate the program to one school is a result of a recent enrollment study the district commissioned.

Preschool hours will remain the same: 9:10-11:55 for the morning session and 1:15-4 p.m. for the afternoon.

Tuition-Based Lottery

Due to the limited number of tuition-based seats in our Lakota Preschool, a yearly lottery is held in January to select students for the program. 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the potential changes in classroom locations, we have drawn names and contacted parents for the established classrooms for the 2019-20 school year.  We hope to have confirmation on the remaining classroom placements and lottery wait list numbers soon. If you have not been notified, please be patient as we finalize the remaining classrooms. We will reach out to families via email with either their classroom placement or wait list number as soon as possible.
