Hawkey Preschool Collage 3

Hamilton Community Schools is proud to offer Hawkeye Preschool at Sandyview Elementary.  Hawkeye Preschool offers half-day sessions for 3-year-olds (Tuesday and Thursday mornings) and 4-year-olds (3 mornings OR 4 afternoons). Eligibility for preschool is determined by the child’s age on September 1st in the year of enrollment. The program year runs from mid- September to mid-May.

The afternoon sessions at Hawkeye preschool will offer Great Start Readiness Program slots for qualifying four year olds in addition to tuition-based slots.  Qualification for GSRP, which is a state-funded free preschool option is based primarily upon income levels (eligible income for a family of four in 2017-2018 is $61,500) or other qualifying factors.  A tuition assistance application, which includes qualification information, is available on the left side of this webpage and is required for Great Start Readiness applicants.  Tuition Assistance has also been offered for our three-year old program through Ready for School.
