New Kent County Public Schools is excited to share our vision for a unified early childhood program.  The long term goal for preschool aged children is for them to be as ready as possible to enter kindergarten. Therefore, the division’s goal is to offer preschool in each of the elementary schools. In the 2022-2023 school year, New Kent County Public Schools will be opening our third elementary school.  In order to prepare for the expansion, New Kent County Public Schools will be adjusting our pre-school offerings for the 2021-2022 school year.  Not only will we be able to serve our Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) students and model students in our traditional IPOP setting, but we will be including students through the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI).  The purpose of the VPI program is to ensure that all students have access to a high quality preschool education.  Both programs employ an integrated, evidence based curriculum, highly qualified teachers and are safe, student-centered environments. 

There is a Head Start program run by Parent Child Development Corporation that serves multiple counties including New Kent. Please contact Verlane Mack at 804-843-2289 or visit their website:
