Webster County Pre-K is a collaborative program between Webster County Schools, North Central West Virginia Community Action Head Start, and Nicholas Empowerment Starting Points Center. Currently, there are six pre-k classrooms: one at Hacker Valley School, two at Webster Springs Elementary School, and three at Glade Elementary School. The Starting Points Center at Glade Elementary offers after school childcare as a paid service. Your child may attend any pre-k site in Webster County that is convenient for you and meets your  needs, if space is available.  

Pre-K programs currently operate Tuesday-Friday, in accordance with the home school's schedule. Pre-K follows the Webster County School calendar for all holidays, OSE, ISE, Faculty Senate, etc. Changes in the pre-k schedule will be made on a site-by-site basis. If you have questions about your child's schedule, please contact the school or your child's teacher.
