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 boundaries.   

Where is SCP?

We offer SCP at school district sites and community locations.  Exact locations will be listed on the enrollment page.  This year we offer 4K at all 6 elementary buildings, Cathedral School, Family Forum Head Start, Newborn 2 School Education, New Horizons Children’s Center, Superior Children’s Center and the YMCA. *every year is subject to change*

What are program lengths at SCP sites?

Elementary school sites offer a 2 ½ hour SCP class in AM & PM 5 days a week. 

Community sites offer a 2 ½ to 3 hour SCP class 5 days a week.  

Head Start offers a 4 hour program or a 6 hour program 5 days a week depending on the site.  (students enrolled in Head Start are dually enrolled and 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 May 1st.
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, 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 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.
