CROSBY-Little Rangers Family Center, the preschool program at Cuyuna Range Elementary School, will be offering two new programs for the 2019-20 school year: the Little Miners Extended Learning and Little Miners Care.

The programs are an effort to better accommodate busy family schedules and provide a consistent, well-rounded learning environment, a news release stated.

Currently 3-year-olds can only attend a half-day of school, requiring parents/guardians to pick up or drop off their child in the middle of the day. Starting Sept. 9, the program will offer full-day Little Miner Extended Learning where parents can drop off their child in the morning and pick them up when the school day ends. They will attend their half-day session of preschool and then a half-day session of Little Miners Extended Learning.

Preschoolers will also have the option to attend Little Miners Care, available before school 6:45-8 a.m. and after school 3-6 p.m. Ranger Care, designed for kindergarten through sixth-grade students, will still be available before and after school.

The Family Center's Little Miners program is available for children who turn 3 on or before Sept.1, while the Little Rangers program is available for children who are 4 or 5 years old. (Children must be 4 on or before Sept. 1.)

The cost to attend a half-day of the Little Miners Extended Learning is $13.75 per child per day and the cost to attend a full day is $27.50 per child per day. The cost to participate in either Little Miner Care's or Ranger Care's before-school session is $4 per child, per day and the after school session is $9 per child, per day.

Scholarships, sliding fees and payment plans are available to those who qualify. No one will be turned away for an inability to pay.

Any family interested in enrolling their child or children in any of the 2019-20 preschool programs should attend the Little Rangers Family Center Preschool Enrollment Night on April 9. Scheduled for 5-7 p.m., the event will be in the lobby area of the Little Rangers Family Center at Cuyuna Range Elementary School. Enrollment will begin on this day and continue until all available spots are filled. Enrollment forms will be date and time stamped for placement of students into programs.

More information and registration forms can be picked up from the elementary school office or downloaded from the Crosby-Ironton School District website at www.gocigo.com (click on "Departments and Programs" and then "Early Childhood").
