Blue Hill Community Schools Now Offering Preschool

For many years Blue Hill Schools has provided space for a combined effort of ESU #9 and Hastings Head Start to operate a preschool program called the Webster County Early Learning Center (WCELC).   Starting in August, Blue Hill Community Schools will take over operation of the preschool program and it will be called the Blue Hill Preschool. 

Blue Hill Preschool will not be charging a tuition for students to attend.  The new developmental preschool program is for children who have turned 3 by July 31st and turn 5 after July 31st.  Preschool will offer half day and full day sessions.  The program will be staffed by highly qualified early childhood educators many of whom have experience working in a preschool setting. Transportation will be provided to the preschool and to daycares.  Transportation for preschool students will be expanded to include destinations outside of the Blue Hill School District’s boundaries.

We invite you to consider the program for your child. If you have questions or would like more information there will be a special Preview/Enrollment Night on Tuesday, March 20 at 6:30pm in the Blue Hill High School Gym.  First preference for registration will be given to students receiving special education services followed by District resident families and families of current option enrolled students in grades K-12.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Mrs. Lori Toepfer by calling the Blue Hill Elementary School Office at 402-756-2085 or send an email to  A copy of the preschool application can be found by following this link - BH Preschool Application.
