  • Why Prekindergarten?

    Richland County School District One offers FREE, full-day prekindergarten programs for three- and four- year old children. The programs are voluntary and space is limited. The programs provide developmentally-appropriate teaching and learning opportunities for:

    • Social, emotional, and academic awareness and growth;
    • Play, collaboration, and exploration;
    • Cognitive, physical, and emotional development using a viable curriculum; and
    • Certified and passionate educators who are dedicated to their craft and overseeing
      the success of young children.

    3K Program

    • A child must be three years of age by September 1 of the year they would start school.
    • The program is offered only at Gadsden, Bradley, Hopkins, Hyatt Park, Lewis-Greenview, Webber, and Sandel Elementaries (New for the 2022-2023 School Year). Currently, all schools are full except for Webber Elementary.
    • Open to Richland One Zoned families. Each school will serve Richland One students from surrounding areas in the district.

    4K Program

    • A child must be four years of age by September 1 of the year they would start school.
