What You Need to Enroll in Preschool

  • Enrollment Process

     

    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 by the registration 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 has been completed and you have been contacted by the Early Education Office confirming receipt of all required registration documents.  A completed registration alone does not guarentee enrollment.  You will be contacted by the Early Education office regarding the status of your enrollment.  Students will be placed in a classroom if space is availabe.  If space is not available, your child will be placed on a waitlist.
