Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How old does a child need to be to enroll in OPA preschool?
A: The preschool will service students for 1 year prior to kindergarten enrollment; therefore, student must be 4 years old BEFORE September 2.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: Since the preschool is a privately run program, there will be a cost. We are working with the Department of Workforce Services and other local agencies to ensure costs are in line with assistance parameters. Specific information on costs will be available in February.
Q: Does the preschool feed into OPA Kindergarten.
A: The preschool must be operated independently from the OPA K-9 program due to Utah state law. OPA K-9 enrollment must comply with the lottery state requirements and OPA Board policy. Therefore, preschool enrollment does not guarantee OPA Kindergarten enrollment.

A: OPA Preschool will operate full-day in conjunction with the OPA School Calendar. Before and afterschool services may be available separately.
Q: Will breakfast and lunch be available?
A: The OPA preschool will work with the National School Lunch Program to provide breakfast and lunch services. Free and reduced criteria will follow the same pattern as the OPA K-9 program.
