This includes transportation, meals, snacks, parent education programs, and field trips.

The Bulldog Beginnings preschool utilizes a joint application with all other Kalamazoo County preschool programs to help cut down on duplication and enable us to appropriately place children.

We will be collecting applications for the next school year starting in March and will begin accepting students and notifying families AFTER JUNE 30th of their application status. Questions?
