PRE-K program

The Pre-Kindergarten Program is located at the Neshoba County School District, Office of Federal Programs/Pre-K building at 1125 Golf Course Road. Students are screened for enrollment by a pre-kindergarten test. The program is designed to serve those children with the most academic/ developmental needs, and will be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2022.  The classes will begin and end to coincide with the regular school term at Neshoba County Schools.  Participating students’ parents will be required to provide transportation to and from the center.  As other students in the school district, pre-k students will be offered breakfasts and lunches by the Neshoba County School District Food Services.

Registration and testing will be conducted from 8:30 am – 2:00 pm, on May 23 – 25.  We ask that one parent attend with the child being tested. 

For more information, call the office of Federal Programs/Pre-K @ 601-656-4484 or email Deirdre Manning at dmanning@neshobacentral.com or Sheila Goss at sgoss@neshobacentral.com.
