My daughter still has a couple of years before she will start a 4 year old program but I wanted to go ahead and find out what my options are.

Coming from Oklahoma, a lot of our public elementary schools had a 4 year old program. Some half day, some full day, some free, some cost.

Anyway - I was wondering if Fort Mill schools have any kind of program? My son is at Fort Mill Elementary so I know they do not have such a program. Do ANY of the elementary schools? And if so, do you actually have to be within that schools boundaries to use their 4 year old program?

Yes, I know there are preschools all around. My daughter goes to one right now. I was just curious if there was that public school option.

Thanks for any help!

I am interested in the information lovethecarolinas has about this subject as well. I am particularly interested in any affordable pre-k or transitional kindergarten programs that Fort Mill or south Charlotte has to offer for my daughter for the 2013-2014 school year. She will be 5 years old on September 9th and misses the kindergarten cut-off date by 9 days. She is in her 2nd year preschool at Leroy Springs now, but am looking for the next step for her. Thanks!

Default 4 year olds

First off what I am about to write is something that is very hard to get into. There are waiting lists, and I mean serious waiting lists. SO odds are this is not going to be a great option for most who read this but I did want to at least address those who mentioned me (lovethecarolinas) in this thread.

There is a program through the FM high schools where students are studying to become future educators (ECE). Part of the ECE program is for 4 year olds (I believe it is called Leap).

But again they do not take a lot of children and there is a serious waiting list.

My friend and I were discussing this last night. My understanding is that (in Fort Mill), special needs children are given priority. I have a friend who lives in the Clover school district and her son was enrolled in a 4 yr old program at Crowders Creek Elementary last year. He is not special needs, but my assumption is they were income qualified, but I never directly asked.

Default Fort Mill Program for Four-Year-Olds

Fort Mill Program for Four-Year-Olds

Fort Mill School District 4 provides a half-day program for four year olds. Each class is taught by a certified early childhood teacher and a teacher assistant. Twenty children are enrolled in each class.


To qualify for the 4K class, a child must be four years old on or before September 1, 2015. The child must also be screened for any developmental delays, speech, hearing, or vision concerns. Family information is also taken at the time of the screening. Children with the most need are given first priority for class placement, and space is limited.

The class runs five days a week with a morning or afternoon session of approximately 3 hours each. The class provides many experiences in motor, language, and concept development. There is much opportunity for music and movement, art expression, reading, and learning through play centers and group times. There is no fee for the program and a snack is provided.

To be considered for the 4K class, parents should call 803-548-2530 for a screening appointment beginning April 6, 2015. The 4 year-old screening will take place April 23 and April 24 at Riverview Elementary School, 1300 Spratt Street, Fort Mill.

Parents/legal guardians should bring the following to the screening:

Your Child
Your Child’s Legal Birth Certificate with Seal SC
Certificate of Immunization
Proof of Fort Mill Residency
Custody Papers (if applicable)
