  • Pre-K Counts Program Registration Still Open

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 10/19/2021 3:15:00 PM

    The Owl Hill Pre-K Counts program, offered collaboratively by The Owl Hill Learning Center and Hempfield School District (HSD), is coming soon to Landisville Primary Center. The class is designed for 4-year-old children to experience a Pre-K program in the Hempfield School District.

    Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts provides high-quality pre-kindergarten services in schools, preschools, and child care centers throughout the state. This new program is open to HSD children who turned four years of age on or before September 1 and meet the program eligibility requirements. 

    The program has been approved through the Office of Child Development and Early Learning. Pending final approval from the PA Department of Education board and the Hempfield School District board, classes for students will start Monday, October 25, 2021 at Landisville Primary Center. Two, half-day sessions will be offered – a three-hour morning program and a three-hour afternoon program – and will follow the HSD calendar. 

    Materials and breakfast or lunch are provided at no cost to families. Transportation is the responsibility of the family, as no busing is offered for this program. 

    The Owl Hill Pre-K Counts staff will be doing eligibility screenings by appointment or the Pre-K Counts Application and Eligibility Screening form can be found on the HSD website at www.hempfieldsd.org/prekcounts

    To learn more about this program or to make a screening appointment, contact Mrs. Julie Mathers, Pre-K Counts Coordinator, at (717) 435-0593 or hsdpkc@gmail.com.
