Lincoln County NC Pre-Kindergarten
Lincoln County NC Pre-K is a state funded, community-based North Carolina Prekindergarten program. This program offers high quality educational experiences for eligible 4 year olds and enhances school readiness.
To apply, please complete the two-step application process that includes:
Step 1: Mail your child's application, along with the required documents - certified birth certificate or shot record, two proofs of residence (power, gas, water, cable, landline, telephone, lease, or mortgage) and verification of income for all parents/step-parents living in the home of the preschool child (recent check stub, etc.) - to the Partnership for Children of Lincoln & Gaston Counties: 120 Roechling Street, Dallas, NC 28034.
Step 2: Bring your child to the Pre-K screening. Every child who registers for Pre-K will be screened. This is a very simple process where we ask your child some questions, look at some pictures together, etc. to see how your child is doing. Once screening is complete, we will look at each child's information, offering placement in the Pre-K classroom based on required eligibility factors. Not every child who applies is able to be placed. Your child may be placed on a waiting list. Download the Pre-K Screening flyer below for more details about this process.
