  • Kindergarten:  Planning for Success Meeting - December 8, 2016
    for Familes with Students Enrolled in the Sutter Park Early Childhood Program
    Please plan to attend our quarterly parent meeting, on Thursday, December 8, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. at Sutter Park. This presentation, Kindergarten: Planning for Success, will be led by a panel of individuals who will discuss skills that lead to a successful kindergarten experience. Families will also be given ideas of what they can do at home to help develop these skills.
    Important - The process for applying for All Day Kindergarten or informing the District that your child will be attending a 1/2 day program has changed.  District staff will be available at the December meeting to discuss these changes.
    Please return the bottom (RSVP) portion of the flyer sent out in our email or sent home in the backpack or call the office at 614-450-4900 to indicate your intent to attend.  This meeting is recommended for all parents of students who attend the Early Childhood Program at Sutter Park who are interested in sending their child to Kindergarten in the fall of 2017. 

    A different transition meeting will be held on Thursday, January 12, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. at Sutter ParkThis meeting is for parents who currently have a child on an IEP.  We will discuss the transition process with families and will include topics, such as, what services and programs look like, evaluations that may need to be completed prior to kindergarten, trnasitioning to a school-age IEP, if necessary, and other valuable information.


    If you have a child attending Sutter Park as a typical peer that will be going to kindergarten in the fall of 2017, we would advise you to attend the December meeting for important information.


    If you have a child attending Sutter Park with an IEP, we would advise you to attend both the December and January meetings.  Each meeting will provide different information that will not be duplicated.

  • Early Childhood Program 2016-2017
    Are you interested in having your child attend the Worthington Early Childhood Program for children ages 3 through 5 for the 2016-2017 school year?   
    We still have several openings in our PM program (children born on or prior to June 1, 2012) for typically developing peer models. For our AM program (children born after June 1, 2012) we have a short waiting list.  Email our secretary at with your child's name, DOB, your name and contact information. Both the child and parents/legal guardian must live in the Worthington School District to attend our program. 
    While our preschool office is closed during the summer, if you live in the Worthington School District and suspect your preschooler may have a disability, please email Valerie Cook at  Valerie handles our preschool referrals and will contact you on one of the days she works during the summer.
    If you recently moved into the District and your preschool child has been identified for special education services and is currently on an IEP, please enroll your child with the District. Click here to learn more.
