children who have identified disabilities or speech delays.

Hardin County Schools' Preschool Program offers the following components:

  • Preschool services for eligible children at no cost to the parent
  • Activities that develop creativity and thinking skills through play

 The mission of the Hardin County Schools' Preschool Program, a fully integrated, comprehensive program, is to enrich the lives of children and their families by supporting the child's development in the areas of physical, social, emotional and intellectual and by moving the child and family toward self-sufficiency and social competence.

North Park Preschool - 
There are currently eight preschool classrooms at North Park. We provide a morning session and afternoon session which is determined primarily by where students are transported to and from school. We are fortunate to have two preschool classrooms designated by the Kentucky Department of Education as Classrooms of Excellence, and two others in the process of applying.

We provide a rich, nurturing environment full of developmentally appropriate learning activities.
