Centerville Preschool

To meet the needs of children with disabilities starting at age 3, Centerville Preschool offers an integrated preschool program. Our preschool serves both children with special needs and peer models, ages 3-5. Our program is designed to develop social skills as well as kindergarten readiness. There are a limited number of openings for typically developing children. Our preschool program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education.

The FIRST DAY of PRESCHOOL is Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2021. The LAST DAY of PRESCHOOL is Thursday, June 2, 2022.

If you are concerned that your child may have a delay, please contact us for more information, please call 937-438-6030, Ext. 4709 or email Preschool Principal Andrea Contestable or email Preschool Psychologist Alison Kolber-Jamieson.

The following student groups are given first priority in admission to the preschool:

  • Returning preschool students
  • Age-eligible siblings of returning preschool students
  • Age-eligible siblings of preschool students with disabilities
  • Children of employees of Centerville City Schools

All other openings in the preschool are filled by lottery from among those who are registered between Feb. 1-5. Generally speaking, students will be accepted based on their lottery draw or the date and time of application after Feb. 5. However, the needs of the program may override this general principle. For example, the age and gender composition of each class will generally reflect Centerville’s student population.

Those interested in entering their typically developing child in the preschool program may do so by completing the forms posted on the website or at the schools the first week of February. The lottery will be conducted on Feb. 11. Families will be notified by Feb. 16 if their child is selected. Students chosen through the lottery will be invited to attend a mini preschool class as a screening for possible placement. Children attending PVS will be screened in March or April. During the screening, parents are asked to stay and learn more about the program.  

If the lottery has taken place and you are still interested in your typically developing child attending Centerville's preschool, you may complete the wait list application.  When and if openings arise, lottery participants and wait list applicants are called in the order by lottery number drawn and/or date of wait list application.
