Application & Admission
Children must be three years of age by September 15 and be toilet trained to be eligible for enrollment in the fall semester. Each session enrolls sixteen children. Returning students have first priority for re-enrollment and will be enrolled before the assignment of new students. The notice for application will be advertised in The Campus Memo, The Grinnell Herald Register, and The Pennysaver.
The Grinnell College Preschool Laboratory provides a high-quality preschool program for the College and town and a research lab for Grinnell students and faculty. Preschool staff members use developmentally appropriate practices to create a supportive, nurturing learning environment that meets individual needs and encourages children’s natural curiosity.
