Preschool Program & Play-Based Assessment
Bowling Green City Schools provides a preschool program for children with special needs and typically developing peer role models. The preschool classes are taught by licensed teachers and include a developmentally appropriate curriculum. The classrooms are located at Conneaut Elementary School.
Children participating in the program must be at least 3 years old when they enroll. Children attending as peer role models must be toilet trained prior to enrollment. Preschool students attend 4 half days per week, Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays and vacations.
A parent and child visit day will be scheduled during the school day in order to allow parents, children and teachers to meet before children begin school. Applications for enrollment may be filled out at this time or prior to arrival. In order to complete the registration process, please bring the following documents with you on the day you visit.
Please bring the following information to Play-Based Assessment Screenings:

- Something to read or occupy your time while your child is being evaluated

The Bowling Green School District provides a five-star Step Up to Quality Rating for children between the ages of 3 to 5.
