For future Lake of the Woods school students, there are two “in-school” options for pre-kindergarten school.  Please read through these descriptions to see which is the best fit for you and your student and if your student/family qualifies.

School Readiness

Operated and funded through Lake of the Woods School, our School Readiness classroom prioritizes Kindergarten readiness for 4-year-olds.  Enrollment is determined on a year-by-year basis, based on a number of factors:

– Number of applications

– Ages of applicants

– Funding opportunities

If your student does not qualify for certain types of funding (based on family income, age, etc.), the school may charge a fee for enrollment.  Fee schedule is as follows:

Head Start

Head Start is a federally funded program that is operated by Northwest Community Action, independent from Lake of the Woods School, and runs a classroom in the school building.  While NWCA and LW School work closely with each other on enrollment, programming, transportation, etc. they are separate programs.
