Midland Public Schools' 3-Year-Old Preschool Program ... What do YOU think?

As you may know, several years ago, Midland Public Schools launched very successful 4-year old preschool programs, which are now housed at the Carpenter Street School Pre-Primary Center.

The District is seeking public input to determine if there is interest in Midland PS starting a 3-year-old preschool program also in the Pre-Primary Center on Carpenter Street.

If you have a child who may be ready for a 3-year-old preschool program in the next few years, would you please answer the questions on this short survey:

As you will see from the survey, we are looking at a number of variables to determine if a 3-year-old preschool program run by Midland Public Schools may be something that would be of interest for young families.

If you do not have a little one ... please don't hit that delete key yet!

We hope you will forward this email to family members/friends/neighbors who have a little one/little ones who may be ready for a 3-year-old program in the next year or so.

Who better than Midland Public Schools to get little ones prepared for their K-12 educational journey?

Please complete this survey before the end of the day Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Thank you!
