PreK/Head Start

Ark City Public Schools provides blended early childhood learning program that combines Head Start, special education, and the district's PreK program students into classes within the neighborhood elementary schools. Through a carefully curated curriculum, children have the opportunity to engage with one another and participate in hands-on, collaborative learning activities in the classroom. This blended approach fosters the development of essential cognitive, social, and emotional skills, preparing children for a successful transition to elementary school.

To learn more about our Ark City PreK program or to schedule a screening for your child, please call 620-441-2075 or visit the PreK webpage.
