What You Need to Enroll in Preschool

  • Enrollment Process


    As a part of the enrollment process, your child will receive a free developmental screening.  Screenings may be scheduled by phone and will take place virtually.  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.  

    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.  If registration is completed prior to a screening taking place, you will be contacted by the Early Education Office Manager to schedule your screening. 


    Once a screening has taken place, you may begin the online registration process. Click here for information on how to complete online registration; Online Registration Information


    Enrollment is finalized once a screening has been completed and you have been contacted by the Early Education Office Manager confirming receipt of all required registration documents.  A completed registration does not guarentee enrollment.  You will be contacted regarding the status of your enrollment and class placement prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.


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