• Welcome to Early Childhood!

    The Eudora Schools Early Childhood Programs are located at Eudora Elementary School.  The programs offered through the Eudora Schools Early Childhood Program are designed to meet the needs of a variety of children, including special education and at-risk students.  The program also has typically developing peers who serve as models demonstrating age-appropriate skills and behaviors.


    Students aged 3 or 4 who were attending the early childhood program in May 2022 are already pre-registered for the early childhood program in August 2022.  Watch for information about the annual online enrollment in July to complete your student's annual enrollment.  If you wish to use the extended care option, you must apply for a slot.  Please reference the extended care program information on the left-hand menu.

    If your child was not attending preschool at the end of the school year in May, he or she will need to attend a monthly screening.  Upcoming screening dates will be posted on the Eudora Elementary School Calendar.  Please fill out the Pre-Enrollment Form and call the Eudora Elementary School main office at 785-542-4940 to schedule a screening appointment.


    In order to better serve your students and meet state guidelines, the early childhood program will begin on Thursday, Aug.18th, and will be in session at those times:

    Full Day Session
    7:30 AM - 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday

    Morning Session (Includes Breakfast)
    7:30 AM - 11:00 AM, M,T,Th,F (No Wednesday Session)

    Afternoon Session (Includes Lunch)
    11:30 AM - 3:00 PM, M,T,Th,F (No Wednesday Session)

    Your student’s assignment to the morning or afternoon half-day session is determined by a variety of factors including, age, class sizes, and individual needs.  Typically, children who will be attending kindergarten the following school year will be assigned to the afternoon session.  Younger students who will not be transitioning to kindergarten the following year will be attending the morning session.  Both of these sessions will be held on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  

    Fee structure

    All students will pay a $65 instructional supply fee, as well as a $5 technology usage fee. Students qualifying for free/reduced lunch may receive support for the instructional supply fee. In addition, early childhood students who enroll as peer models will be charged a monthly early childhood fee of $70 for half day peers and $140 for full day peers. The monthly fee does not apply to those students who are on a special education plan and/or qualify for at-risk status. Click here to view the district fee schedule, with additional information.


    Depending on whether your child is in the morning or afternoon session, he/she will have time to eat breakfast or lunch as part of the early childhood curriculum. 

    District calendar

    The district calendar includes regular early release days (second Wednesday of each month), as well as teacher in-service days and teacher workdays.
