What You Need to Enroll in Preschool

  • Enrollment Process

    As a part of enrollment, your child will receive a screening to determine appropriate placement. 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.
