Swede Preschool Academy



In an effort to reach those students not already being served by our community’s private preschool providers, Gothenburg Public Schools has created its own preschool program that started in the 2016-2017 school year.

Your child must turn 4 on or before July 31st to be eligible.  Preschool classes will be held four days a week, Monday-Thursday.

Space is limited, and for this reason, families must complete the application in it’s entirety for their child to be considered for the preschool program.  This includes completely filling out the School Lunch Program information if this information is not already on file with the district.  Please do not leave anything blank as this might result in your application not being considered.  Enrollment priorities will be given to children who are most in need of an early childhood education program.  A sliding fee scale will be used to determine tuition rates.  Information regarding the sliding fee scale and enrollment priorities can be found below.  

       Sliding fee scale:

Tier I:   Full Tuition- $150 per month for 9 months

Tier II:  Free Tuition - Child qualifies for free or reduced meal program.

Enrollment priority criteria:

  • Qualifies for free or reduced meals.  (Application and guidelines enclosed)

  • Child has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP)

  • Child is in foster care

  • Parents under 18 years of age at time of child’s birth or have not completed high school

  • Child’s birth weight was under five pounds or was born prematurely (verified by physician)

  • English is not the primary language spoken at home.

Applications are due March 31st!

To have an application packet emailed to you, please contact Mrs. Allison Jonas at allison.jonas@goswedes.org or stop by the elementary office.
