The Fort Mill School District  provides a limited 4-year old program (4K) for qualifying students. Each class is taught by a certified early childhood teacher and a teacher assistant. The classes are housed at Riverview, Fort Mill and Tega Cay Elementary Schools. A child must live in the Fort Mill School District and be 4 years old by Sept. 1 to  be considered for the class. Children who demonstrate the most need are given priority for the 4K class. Qualifying factors include: financial need, prior therapy, slight developmental delay, and family factors.

The 4K class provides many experiences in motor, language, and concept development. There is much opportunity for music and movement, art expression, reading, and learning through play centers and group times. The PreK On My Way (Scholastic) curriculum is used. There is no tuition for the 4K program.

The Half Day 4K class runs five days a week with a morning and afternoon session of approximately 2.5 hours each. The Full Day 4K is a full school day 7:40-2:00. Twenty children are enrolled in each class. Bus transportation is available.

There are other preschool classes in the district for children with an identified special need and IEP (803-548-8218), and a tuition-based 4K program is connected with each high school. For more information on the full day tuition-based class, please visit their website by clicking here.
