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.
