The New Mexico State University Roadrunner PreK program is accepting enrollment for the 2017-18 school year.
The program is open to children who turn 4 years old by Sept. 1 and will attend a qualifying school for kindergarten.
Program officials said priority will be given to children who will be attending Title 1 schools for their kindergarten year and who have never been in a school setting before.
Each class will have two teachers and 20 children, and run through May 2018. Located in NMSU’s Myrna’s Children’s Village, the program has highly educated teachers who have a large pool of resources.
Qualifying schools include Alameda, Booker T. Washington, Central, César Chavez, Columbia, Conlee, Doña Ana, East Picacho, Hermosa Heights, Loma Heights, MacArthur, Mesilla Park, Monte Vista, Sunrise, Tombaugh, University Hills and Valley View elementary schools in the Las Cruces Public Schools system.
Attendance at other schools may qualify, but need prior approval. Classes will be provided in the morning and afternoon.
