Preschool 2022-2023 School Year

  • The Clear Creek Amana school district is committed to providing a high-quality preschool experience. We offer morning or afternoon classes at four elementary sites on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (no Wednesdays). Students enrolled in morning classes will be in school from 8:15 - 11:15 AM and students enrolled in afternoon classes will be in class from 12:15 - 3:15 PM. Due to space constraints, there are no guarantees of preferred morning placement. Requests for a specific building and AM/PM sessions will be reviewed by building administrators.

    Program: Both AM and PM classes will offer the same curriculum complete with assessment protocols, snacks, and large and small motor development.

    Fees:  There will be no charge to qualifying students. To qualify for FREE preschool, a student must be age 4 on or before September 15th.  Preschool is free through Iowa's Voluntary Preschool Grant and there are no requirements for residency or income. Curriculum guidelines and assessment procedures will be the same for both morning and for afternoon classes. Students who are eligible for kindergarten but who wish to enroll into preschool, please contact your building principal for prior approval and fee information.

    Transportation: Students have the option for bus transportation to and from designated neighborhood stops, homes and to the best of our ability, to currently licensed daycares operating within our district. Per state requirements, CCA schools are not permitted to bus outside of our school boundaries. Bus stops and routes will be determined closer to the beginning of the school year. Specific questions can be directed to the transportation department.

    Out of district families: In-district families will have priority for enrollment. Out of district families enrolled in preschool will still need to follow all open enrollment policies outlined by the School Board for school-aged years (Kindergarten through 12th grade). If you live in Johnson County, follow the instructions with this School Finder tool and it will tell you if you're in the CCA school district and what attendance center your child will attend for Kindergarten. If you live in Iowa County, please use this link for Iowa County boundary information.

    Clear Creek Amana schools partners with both Little Clippers and Sprout Kids Academy* in Tiffin, to provide offsite preschool. Please contact Little Clippers or Sprout Kids Academy directly for any additional information. Registration, curriculum guidelines and assessment procedures will be the same for both AM and for PM classes at school-based and partner based centers.
