Hillsboro District #3 Pre-K Programs have been serving children and families in the communities of Butler, Coffeen, Donnellson, Hillsboro, Irving, Panama, Taylor Springs and Witt, since 1986.
Our Pre-K classrooms are funded by a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education and serve children 3-5 years of age. There are no fees or charges for attending Pre-K. We are located at 3 attendance sites in Hillsboro District #3; Coffeen Elementary School, Hillsboro Child Development Center, and at the Hillsboro Free Methodist Church. All 3 sites offer the same family involvement activities, parent resources, developmentally appropriate curriculum, certified Early Childhood Teachers, and state certified teaching assistants. We offer half-day classes (a.m. & p.m.) 5 days a week. We offer bussing to the Coffeen site for students throughout the entire school district.
Hillsboro Pre-K classrooms provide the least restrictive inclusionary setting for all children, regardless of their developmental level or disability, by fully blending Pre-Kindergarten and Early Childhood Special Education services. Call the Pre-K Office at Coffeen Elementary School, 217-534-2314 for information about any of our attendance centers or programs.
