Ready, Set, Go! Pre-K to Kindergarten
Preschools, Day Care Centers, kindergarten teachers along with Building Brickies educators come together to collaborate on behalf of the School City of Hobart's youngest citizens.
Our mission is to have every 4 year old attend preschool before entering Kindergarten! To help advance early childhood education in Hobart, we are collectively working with local preschools who are members of School City of Hobart's Ready, Set, Go program.
The following preschools are Founding Members of Ready, Set, Go. Since 2010 they have worked towards early childhood excellence in Hobart. We are honored to have them as collaborative partners in Hobart!

Here are some topics that are discussed:
The Week of the Young Child
The School City of Hobart and area preschools in conjunction with the City of Hobart sponsor the Week of the Young Child. This week focuses on our youngest citizens in Hobart. We offer events that focus on ages prenatal–age 5. We like to encourage families with young children to participate in as many activities as possible. Early childhood education is vital to our community. Children need a strong early learning foundation to succeed in school, and go on to succeed in life. We make a difference by supporting early literacy, reaching out and working with teachers and parents who help young children get a great start and support policies that provide high quality learning opportunities for all young children. We advertise on our announcements on the district website, our Focus on Education Newsletter, local newspapers, school flyers, and signboards which name exact locations of the events.
The ELC hosts a Kindergarten Kick-Off for all incoming kindergarten students. During this time we will welcome all of our incoming students and their parents. We encourage them to meet the ELC faculty, learn about the curriculum, prepare for registration, and get answers to frequently asked questions!
School City of Hobart parents may enroll their child if they are five years old on or before August 1 of the upcoming school year. Kindergarten registration is held at the Early Learning Center at George Earle. We offer approximately 5 sessions and parents can attend the session of their choice:
Parent/Guardian will need to provide the following documents:
Indiana Driver's License or State ID listing current Hobart address
2 additional proofs of residency (i.e. utility bills/mortgage papers)

Custody papers, if necessary
PLAY! is a very important part of learning
