Enrollment Process

  • The schedule for preschool developmental screenings is now full for the 2022-2023 school year.  If you have already scheduled an appointment and have questions, please call our office at 314-824-2074.  You may also email us at earlyed@fergflor.org

    If your child has completed a preschool screening AND you have been cleared for enrollment by the Admissions department, please read below for next steps.

    As a part of the enrollment process, your child will receive a free developmental screening.  Click here for a List of Items Needed for Virtual Screenings. PLEASE BE SURE TO KEEP THIS APPOINTMENT.  You will receive a phone call from one of our screeners one day prior to your scheduled appointment time.  At this time, our screener will ask questions to get to know both you and your child better.  In addition, you will receive the link for the virtual screening. 

    This free developmental screening assesses vision, hearing, health, speech, language, motor skills and concepts. All children between the ages of 3 and 5 are eligible to receive this screening. The results of the screening are shared with parents and guardians to better understand each child’s strengths and abilities, areas of concern and overall developmental progress.   

    Step 1:  A screening is the first step in the enrollment process.  To schedule an appointment for a free developmental screening, please call our office at 314-824-2074. Enrollment is not complete until a screening has taken place 

    Step 2:  Once your child's screening has been completed, you may begin the online registration process. Click here for information on how to complete online registration; Online Registration Information

    Step 3:  Once we have your child's completed screening and you have been cleared for enrollment by the Admission office, your child will be placed on a waitlist.  Once a spot becomes available, you will be contacted by the Early Education office. 

    Please Note-Enrollment is finalized once a screening and online registration have been completed.  To verify that all online registration documents have been accepted, please contact the Admission Office at 314-824-2035.  A completed registration alone does not guarantee enrollment. Students will be placed in a classroom if space is available.  If space is not available, your child will be placed on a waitlist.

    If your child has a current IEP, contact the Early Childhood Special Education office at 314-824-2073 prior to completing online registration.
