Hilliard City Schools | Ready for Tomorrow


Preschool Program

The HCSD Preschool program is designed for children ages three to five who manifest mild to severe delays in one or more developmental areas. The program’s goal is to provide children with educational opportunities that promote educational success and daily independence.

The program is primarily designed for children with disabilities; however, typically developing children who enjoy a well-rounded, developmentally appropriate preschool experience may apply as peer models for the students with disabilities. Learn more about the peer model program.
