POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT) - The Poplar Bluff School District is planning to add a preschool program thanks to a grant.
The school received a $250,000 grant from the Missouri Preschool Program that will allow the Early Childhood Center to enroll 60 students and employ 6 staff members.
The school will have 3 classrooms.
They plan for the preschool to be open by September 21.
That is pending licensing by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
Enrollment will take place on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Cost of tuition will be set on a sliding scale based on income levels used for the free and reduced lunch program.
