Winchester Public Schools is pleased to offer a tuition-based, dual language immersion pre-K program. Through an exciting, engaging, and enriching environment, four-year old students learn content in Spanish. Following an immersion model, instruction is delivered mostly in English early in the year and 90% in Spanish after routines are established. The class follows the WPS calendar, a 180-day schedule from mid-August to late May. A limited number of reduced-tuition spaces are available for children of employees of Winchester Public Schools or the City of Winchester. The regular cost for this program is $695.00 per month. The reduced cost for WPS and City of Winchester employees is $495.00 per month.
Parents may enroll their children for the next school year beginning in January. Rolling registration occurs all year long, as spaces are available. Children who will be four years of age on or before September 30, 2019, may register.
Parents may register for the Dual Language Immersion Program at Frederick Douglass Elementary School on Tuesday-Friday, 9:00am-3:00pm beginning January 2, 2019. To reserve a spot for your child, submit your completed registration form and a deposit for the first month's tuition to the school. Reservations will be taken until the class is full.
