COFFEYVILLE, KANSAS Preschool was a logistical boon for Delice Downing and an educational bonanza for her son, Adrian.
The head volleyball coach and director of student life at Coffeyville Community College had ruled out day care when she heard the price: several hundred dollars a week.
Then Adrian reached preschool age. Coffeyville offers something most Kansas communities dont: free attendance at a preschool with room for nearly all kids in town whose parents want it.
