About Kirtland Preschool


Dear Kirtland Parents and Guardians,

We are ecstatic that we will have the opportunity to re-open our Preschool for our future Hornets after having to close the program for the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19. The 2021-2022 school year is just around the corner and we are excited to begin enrolling children for the upcoming school year. The Kirtland Schools’ Bright Beginnings Preschool will open its doors in mid-August. Parents will have the opportunity for an individual meet and greet with the classroom staff the week before Bright Beginning Preschool begins.
