2019-2020 Preschool Scholarships

 Apply now!

Good News! If you will need scholarship assistance for the 19-20 school year for Colvill Kids Preschool, it is important to apply for assistance EARLY. By EARLY, we mean BY December 20, 2018. Preschool registration will open in January so that you can secure a spot, but due to some changes in our scholarship funds, we need to have families apply for scholarship assistance before registration opens. It is important to note that if your family qualifies for SNAP, MFIP or Free and Reduced Lunch, you will be able to receive significant scholarship assistance for next school year.

Please call 385-8000 for more information or an application form.

Is Your Child On Track?
If you have a question or concern about your infant, toddler. or preschooler's development please contact Colvill Family Center at 385-8000 or go to Help Me Grow website.

Has Your Preschooler Completed Early Childhood Screening?
Minnesota law requires that each child must participate in a screening program before entering kindergarten in a Minnesota public school.  Children participate in a screening between the ages of 3 years and 5 years old. The purpose of screening is to assist parents and communities in improving the health of Minnesota children and to assist in planning educational and health programs of Minnesota children.  If your child is between the ages of 3 and 5 and has not been screened, call 651-385-8000 to schedule an appointment for your child.  Screenings are completed at Colvill Family Center on Thursdays in September through May. Click on Early Childhood Screening link on left side of this page for more information.

Colvill Earns Four Star Parent Aware Rating
Three programs at Colvill have earned Minnesota Parent Aware’s highest rating. Two school district programs: Colvill Kids Preschool and Red Wing Public Schools’ school readiness program along with Three Rivers Community Action Program’s HeadStart center located at Colvill all received the four star rating. Parent Aware awards ratings of one to four stars to qualifying, participating programs based on a number of factors.  Factors considered in determining ratings are: physical health and well-being, teaching and relationships, assessment of child progress, teacher training and education. To earn a four star rating, programs have to demonstrate that they excel in the use of best practices in preparing children for kindergarten. 

The mission of Colvill Family Center is to welcome, support and inspire all families in lifelong learning.

A wide variety of early childhood, family and public health services are available at Colvill Family Center. Educational programs are coordinated by the Community Education Department of the Red Wing School District.
