Cedar Springs — Cedar Springs Public Schools hopes to get input to help inform the district’s preschool programming plans for next year.
“The intent was to see what needs our families have for 3- and 4-year-olds,” said Cassandra Chartier, director of Cedar Springs’ Early Childhood Center. “There are many options for families to choose from as students prepare to enter kindergarten.”
The survey includes questions about the age of incoming preschoolers as of Sept. 1, 2024, as well as the preferred daily timeframe for preschool programs offered by the district: a full day, a half-day in the morning or a half-day in the afternoon.
It also asks how many days of the week families would want to make use of preschool programs, and if families would be interested in before- or after-school care for children enrolled.
“We would love to be able to provide care through our before- and after- school program for our preschool families if the need is there,” Chartier said.
The survey also includes a space for feedback and comments.
In the newsletter, the district stated that it values input on programming, and that feedback is crucial to planning for the year ahead.
The survey takes about five minutes to complete and will be available until Jan. 20.
