Hawkeye Preschool

Hawkeye Preschool 2024-2025 Registration!

Hawkeye Preschool is having another amazing year! While we are excited for the remainder of the 2023-2024 school year, we must begin to look ahead to Fall 2024.
Registration for our 3 year old AM & our 4 year old classes opens today! As we did last year, registration will take place online.  A $50 non-refundable deposit will be collected online to secure a spot for your child.  Once you have paid the $50 non-refundable deposit to secure your spot, we will start the registration process with the paperwork to prep for the school year. 
For families that are interested in our 4 year old classes, we are asking that everyone please follow the Help Me Grow Link below to fill out the MiECC Application. Anyone with questions or for assistance in applying, please call Mrs. Kuzee at 267-751-5372. Make sure for the city you are looking for preschool in you select 'Holland' then for preschool select 'Hamilton Community Schools'.
This application will require you to upload income documentation (1040 form for 2023) to gauge who qualifies for GSRP and who does not. Make sure all social security numbers are blacked out. You can start the application anytime, even if you do not have your 1040 tax return - this can be uploaded at a later date. The income guidelines for the 2024-2025 school year have not been released, however with the governors push for all 4 year olds to have free Preschool, we anticipate the income will be significantly higher than normal. In the past, guidance from the State of Michigan has taken well into the summer. Please be patient & understand that we will communicate any information as soon as it is made available to us.
**If you do not plan to send your child if you do not qualify for GSRP or Preschool is not free for all 4 year olds, please do not pay the deposit fee as we would like to hold those spots for people that would be sending their child regardless. If you think you might not qualify for GSRP, but really would like your child to attend Hawkeye Preschool (& would still pay the tuition costs), please secure a spot by paying the deposit. If you do qualify or Preschool is free for all 4 year olds, we will refund your deposit. With the registration link above, we have included the tuition breakdown IF we do end up having to charge for Preschool. 


Hamilton Community Schools is proud to offer Hawkeye Preschool, a 5-star rated preschool, at Sandyview Elementary.
