CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) --
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) --Kanawha County Schools announced Monday that several dates for preschool enrollment have been changed due to the continued teacher work stoppage.
The county was scheduled to start preschool enrollment fairs on Wednesday on the East End, but those dates have been changed.
Enrollment dates now start on March 6 at the Gateway Center.
The first two events that were scheduled for Feb. 28 at the King Center and at Morris Memorial are now rescheduled for March 12. They will both be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The George Washington area enrollment that was scheduled for March 1 has been moved to March 26 at the India Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Each fair features stations on enrollment application assistance, a nurse's station, a dental appointment center and additional community resource tables.
Kanawha County preschools feature state-approved curriculum, small class sizes and transportation to and from school-based sites. There is no cost to parents.
Also this year there is a change to the age cutoff for students starting preschool all across West Virginia. Children must be 4 years old on or before June 30, 2018, to enroll in preschool for Fall 2018. This is two months earlier than previous years.
