4-Year-Old Preschool Information

General Information

Students must be 4 years old on or before September 15.

Partnership with Carroll Community School District
Kuemper collaborates with Carroll Community School District (CCSD) for the state-funded (tuition-free) four-year-old preschool program. When registering for preschool, families have the option to choose Kuemper or CCSD for their child's preschool site.

Preschool is Tuesday through Friday throughout the school year and runs in half-day sessions. There are morning and afternoon sessions.
Morning Session: 8:00am-11:00am
Afternoon Session: 12:00pm-3:00pm


Morning and afternoon busing is provided on the Carroll Community and Kuemper bus routes. Noon bus transportation is provided for students within the Carroll Community School District.

KuemperCares Program for Preschool and Optional Kindergarten
Kuemper's childcare program KuemperCares offers half-day childcare that complements the half-day preschool classes. This program alleviates parents' worries about finding transportation for their child in the middle of the school day, especially for families that live outside the school district!


If you are discerning where to send your child, please schedule a tour. You will not be disappointed! This can be arranged by contacting Erin Sundrup at [email protected] or 712-792-3313.

22-23 Preschool Calendar


Step One - Fill Out Interest Survey Now 

Preschool Interest Survey by Carroll Community School District

Carroll Community School District (CCSD) has published the first phase of preschool registration for the 22/23 school year.  Students must be 4 years old on or before September 15, 2022. 

The purpose of the interest survey is to gather contact information for all those who will have a preschooler for the 22/23 year. When the official online registration is made live this summer,  all those who have filled out this survey will be notified that the official registration is live.

Filling out the interest survey is imperative to the preschool registration process. Please complete this important step!

Step Two - Discover Kuemper Preschool Night 

Discover Kuemper Preschool Night will take place on Wednesday, March 23, 2022.  

We are aware this night will not work for everyone.  It is not a requirement but we highly encourage you to come to check out the preschool, speak with teachers, have some fun, and learn about Kuemper! 

To spread out the crowd a bit, we ask for families to sign up for a time slot.  We ask that families please come as close to your time slot as possible.   If your family has more than 1 child entering preschool/optional kindergarten, that is ok, one time slot will work.
