Baldwin City USD 348 has three early childhood programs available.  STAR, PEP (Preschool Enhancement Program)  and State Pre-Kindergarten Program (4 Year Old At-Risk).

Baldwin City USD 348 is a great place for learning from the very beginning. We believe that parents are the first and most important teacher.

The STAR program (formerly Parents as Teachers) is designed to enhance child development and school readiness through parent education and support. This program is available for families of children pre-natal to six years.  For more information contact Deanna Kessler-Miley at 785-594-7050 Ext. 115 or email

PEP (Preschool Enhancement Program) is designed to coordinate services for preschool children who may develop or have difficulties in any of the areas of speech, motor, communication, social or other normal learning skills.  For more information contact Deb Ehling-Gwin at 785-594-2444 or email

The State Pre-Kindergarten Program is a preschool program. The purpose of this program is to provide an early childhood education program for four-year-old at-risk children. The goals are to help these children acquire the skills, knowledge and behaviors that they need to transition successfully to kindergarten and increase the level of parent participation in the education of their children.  For more information contact Deb Ehling-Gwin at 785-594-2444 or email
