Preschool Enrollment is now open for 2022-23

The Bardstown Early Childhood Education Center is now accepting enrollment for 2022-23 school year.

Here at Bardstown Early Childhood we have a three-year-old and four-year-old program. All of our teachers have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in early childhood education. And each classroom has a dedicated teacher assistant specially trained in Early Childhood.

We’d love to have you join our preschool family! You can enroll for the 2022-23 school year now. For the first-time ever our enrollment is all online. Click here for information on how to enroll online.

Here’s a few other things to keep in mind:

  • To register for preschool children must be three or four years old by August 1. 
  • If your family resides out of the Bardstown City Schools you must complete our Out-of-District application first. More information on that can be found on our enroll page.
  • Session preference is first come, first serve.
  • To complete registration you’ll need (documents)
    • Birth Certificate
    • Proof of Residency

Who can attend preschool?

  1. The Bardstown Early Childhood Program is provided free of charge to three-year-old children who have a state-recognized developmental delay (these children are eligible for pre-school services on their third birthday) or who are economically eligible through Title One Funding.
  2. Children who are four years old by August 1 and either have a developmental delay or are economically eligible may also attend.  To determine your child’s eligibility under either of these criteria, please call our school office at 502-331-8804.
  3. The program is tuition-based for all other children. For parents paying tuition, we offer a convenient automatic payment plan. Payments are safely and securely debited from a checking or savings account either on a bi-weekly, monthly or tri-annual basis. Parents may also choose to make a one-time payment at the beginning of the school year. 

    Tuition for the 2022-23 school year will be $50 per week (36 week calendar), but discounts are provided if families choose a payment plan mentioned above. Tuition rates are subject to change from year to year. 

    If you suspect that your child may have a delay/disability and would like a free screening, call 331-8804 to set up an appointment.
