Every child deserves an equal chance to a good education.
That?s the theory behind a new USD 257 program that joins forces with local preschools and licensed daycare providers to level the playing field for all 4-year-olds in the district, and better prepare them for kindergarten.
A $139,610 state education grant will allow the district to provide preschool to every 4-year-old, including those who attend two private preschools in Iola: Munchkinland and More at 401 S. Walnut, and Ready Set Learn at 602 S. State.
