  Early Childhood Education
Preschool and Early Kindergarten in White River

White River offers a full array of classes for our youngest learners because we believe "the sooner the better!"  Early childhood education research has shown time and again that kids who have access to a quality preschool program are better prepared for success in school as they progress through their elementary years, to graduation and beyond.

White River recognizes this advantage and has chosen to support this need in our own community.  We've seen incredible results from our early kindergarten program over the past few years, and now wish to extend those benefits to preschool-aged children.  The programs are free to students who live within the White River School District boundaries.

If your child is:
* Turning 5 before August 31, 2018 - regular full-day kindergarten
* Turning 5 between September 1 and December 31, 2018 - Early Kindergarten
*  Now age 4 and will turn 5 between January 1 and August 31, 2019 - No-fee federally funded preschool

New Bus Routes Added!

We are excited at the addition of six bus stops in town and at least one in Copperwynd!
The new stops are listed in our "Bus Schedule Route" Link and will be on our Facebook page as well.

We want to encourage families to utilize these stops to help ease the congestion around our school and improve safety as families enjoy the convenience of having bus stops near their homes!

Here are a few important things to know.

Heather Lane will no longer be used for student pick-up/drop-off via cars. 

Heather Lane will be a No Parking zone.

Students who walk or ride their bikes will still be able to use the gate off Heather Lane.

Families that drop-off or pick-up by car will need to use the main road to Elk Ridge.

Thank you in advance for helping us with our traffic solutions!
