  • Enrollment / Registration
    SCP holds registration in fall and spring. Registration first opens for returning and waitlisted families Open registration will occur after returning and waitlisted families are registered. To be fully enrolled all paperwork and required immunization documentation must be completed, signed, and returned to the Administrator. Open registration slots are filled by a first come, first served basis. The waitlist will be opened if/when we do not reach the 10 student limit and more families are interested in participating.
  • Immunization Requirements
    SCP SOA licensing requirements state that all students must meet SOA Child Care Program (CCP) immunization guidelines and have documentation on file prior to attending preschool in person. There is not currently a COVID-19 vaccination available for children. SCP will follow all SOA CCP guidelines regarding any future immunization requirements.
  • In-Kind Donations
    Our building use through KPBSD is an in-kind donation. We pay a yearly consumable fee for use of some materials and supplies. Some custodial and technical support is included in this in-kind agreement. From its inception in 2017 through December 2020, all administrative functions and grant writing services have been in-kind donations to SCP. No financial compensation nor tuition reduction has been allocated to the individuals performing those functions.
  • Why is enrollment limited to 10 students? And why doesn’t SCP offer two sessions (morning and afternoon)?
    Seldovia Community Preschool (SCP) is a State of Alaska (SOA) Licenced Child Care Center. Only School District Pre-elementary programs and/or Head Start programs can be licensed with the State as preschools. SOA Licensed Child Care Centers are licensed in part, based on square footage. SCP is licensed for up to 15 students in the Susan B. English School (SBE) Art Room. Our partnership with Kenai Peninsula Borough School District (KPBSD) and our Pre-Elementary Grant with SOA Department of Education and Early Development (DEED) requires that we maintain a best practices ratio for Early Childhood Education (ECE). This ratio is 10 students to 1 SOA Certified/Licensed Teacher (10:1). At this time, in order to have more than 10 students in the classroom at any one time, SCP must have 2 certified ECE teachers. At this time, in order to have more than one session, SCP would need to hire an additional SOA Certified/Licensed Teacher.
  • Preschool Management Structure
    SCP is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit. We have a managing Parent Board and Executive/Officer Board Representatives. SCP has an onsite Administrator/Executive Director who reports to, and is directed by, the Board of Directors. We are in need of Board Members! Please let us know if you are interested in supporting your community preschool. SCP general staff is under the direct oversight of the Administrator.
  • DEED Pre-Elementary Grant
    In partnership with KPBSD, Seldovia Community Preschool (SCP) has been awarded a three year grant to fund our program (FY21-FY23). These funds will be available if the monies are legislated to DEED for distribution. This grant focuses on literacy with a goal for all Alaska students to read at grade level by 3rd grade.
  • Is Seldovia Community Preschool part of Kenai Peninsula Borough School District?
    SCP is in partnership with KPBSD/SBE. Our students and staff are guests within the school and must operate under the guidelines as required through our Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the District. We are not considered KPBSD employees or students. Our MOA defines areas of use and hours of operations for the preschool. It outlines expectations and support from both parties during our time in the building. Although the District is very supportive of our program, as always, SBE student and staff needs are priority over building users.
  • Tuition
    As a nonprofit, SCP requires a path for sustainability which includes diversified revenue streams. For our DEED Pre-Elementary grant, SCP must demonstrate that it has other sources of income outside of the grant. Our income sources include fundraising, donations, in-kind contributions, and tuition. The SCP Board of Directors voted to extend a partial tuition scholarship to any and all enrolled families that were interested during the 2021-2022 school year.
  • COVID Protocols
    SCP has an approved COVID-19 mitigation plan on file with KPBSD. We are required to comply with current school district protocols for symptom free schools. The SCP Board of Directors voted to institute a universal mask mandate for the 2021-2022 school year. In the event of a high-risk community or school designation, we will operate under the same parameters as SBE as determined by District leadership. KPBSD COVID-19 mitigation plans, Smart Start plans, and Symptom Free Schools information can be found here: https ://
  • Classroom Parent / Guardian Visits
    In a normal year parents are always welcomed to participate in the classroom. However, part of our job as a program during COVID-19 parameters, is to limit student, staff, and larger school exposure outside of the classroom cohort or group of students. In this case any parent visitations will be specifically scheduled and communicated with families so everyone knows there will be another adult in the classroom. We must be sure to operate under all parameters for safe schools, meaning maintaining cohorts, socially distancing, hand-washing, and mask wearing. One of our main objectives is to keep all students learning in-person, both preschool and SBE. Masks will be required at all times for visitors 2 years of age and older. During scheduled classroom visits, younger siblings will be asked to not accompany parents.
