Non-residents wishing to enroll at Margaretta for the 2017-2018 school year must first complete an open enrollment application. Registration and screening will take place after notification of open enrollment acceptance.

Polar Cubs Preschool

The purpose of the Polar Cubs Preschool Program is to provide a comfortable and enriching environment that respects each child's qualities and nurtures development toward his or her full potential.

The Polar Cubs Preschool Program offers a developmental curriculum for children ages 3 to 5 years. A child will attend 4 days per week, Monday through Thursday. A child on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) attends according to his/her IEP.

Enrollment includes students from Margaretta and Perkins Local School Districts who meet the eligibility requirements for a preschooler with disabilities. Eligibility is determined based on the Rules for the Education of Preschool Children with Disabilities (Chapter 3301.31).

Enrollment for children not meeting the eligibility criteria is available to residents of the Margaretta Local School District. Applications are dated as they are received and children are accepted by age and date of application. In the event that the program has reached its capacity, your child's name will be placed on a waiting list until such time there is an opening in the program.

The hours of the center-based program are 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or 12:45 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. The regular center-based program is NOT held on Fridays. Home visits, playgroups, field trips, facilitating social service linkage for families, etc. are scheduled for Fridays. The teacher will arrange periodic home visits at a convenient time. Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled two times per year.

Tuition charges for 4 half days per week are $150.00 each month. Children on an IEP do not pay tuition.

Payment must be received by the 20th of each month for the upcoming month. Payments may be mailed or delivered to the Margaretta Local School District Board of Education.

Please mail or deliver payments to:

Margaretta Local Schools Board of Education
Attn: Preschool Tuition
305 South Washington St.
Castalia, OH 44824

Please do not give tuition payments to your child's teacher.

If you would like to add your child to the Margaretta Polar Cubs Preschool waiting list, please complete the Preschool Wait List Application. If you have questions about our preschool program, please call Kathy Hall at (419) 684-5351.
