Welcome to Superior Community Preschool and Early CHildhood Services

Superior Community Preschool 

Frequently Asked Questions: 


What is SCP? 

Superior Community Preschool (at times referred to as 

4K) is a free half-day preschool program (either AM or 

PM) offered to children who are 4 by September 1st 

and live within the School District of Superior 


Where is SCP? 

We offer SCP at the following locations: 

Bryant Elementary School 

Cathedral School 

Cooper Elementary School 

Four Corners Elementary School 

Head Start Center 1 

Head Start Center 2 

Great Lakes Elementary School 

Lake Superior Elementary School 

Northern Lights Elementary School 


*every year is subject to change* 

What are program lengths at SCP sites? 

**At this time we are planning for a ‘typical’ year; half days / 5 days a week. IF plans need to be altered due to the pandemic, information will be communicated as needed. 

Elementary school sites offer a 2 ½ hour SCP class 5 days a week. AM or PM offerings; depending on location and enrollment 

Cathedral and YMCA offer a 2 ½ to 3 hour SCP class 5 days a week. 

Head Start offers a 4 hour program 5 days a week OR a 6 hour program 4 days a week depending on the location. (students enrolled in 4K at Head Start must first be accepted into Head Start through their own application process and must qualify based on income guidelines) 

The start and end of programs vary by site.

Can I attend any elementary school I want for SCP? 

Home School preference will be given at the school sites for 4K. We will open up placement at an elementary building that is not your home school mid-April. For Example: I live in Bryant school area and I want my student to attend Cooper. I would enroll at Cooper as my 1st choice. I would then put Bryant (or a community site) as my 2nd choice. Beginning of May, the director will examine numbers and determine if there is space at Cooper. If there is space at Cooper, the director will then call me and offer Cooper as a placement option. 

Is SCP placement on a first-come basis? 

Yes, every application is time-stamped and given a number we use in placement. If you sign up for your home school or a community site location, placement is determined on a first-come basis. If your first choice of site is full; you will be placed in your second choice placement and placed on a waiting list for your first choice. If a spot opens within your first choice location; the director will contact you and offer this spot. 

What if I need transportation? 

School District Transportation Guidelines: You must live 2 miles from your home school or in an eligible bus area in order to qualify for 

transportation. (Please call the Transportation Department if you have questions 715-394-8706). 

If you do not qualify for transportation based on the guidelines; it is up to you to get your child to/from SCP. 

We do not transport between 4K participating sites 

What if I need care beyond the 4K day?
