 Preschool Opportunities

Registration Requirements

Children who turn 2 or 3 years old by September 1, 2016 are eligible for the preschool program. To register, parents/guardians MUST submit a completed application and the following documents to the Early Childhood Center located in their boundary area:


  • Proof of birth
  • Signed current deed/lease or notarized shared housing documentation

 Parents cannot enroll their child without these documents. Space is limited and seats are filled on a first come-first serve basis.

Out-of-Boundary Registration

If you are interested in enrolling your child in an Early Childhood Center located outside of your boundary, you may register at that center beginning June 1.  Enrollment is based on the availability of seats.
