Prekindergarten Online Registration for 2020-2021 is now open!
NOTE: The Prekindergarten registration process is only the first step in determining whether your child will
be accepted into one of our prekindergarten programs. Once all documentation is received at your zoned school,
and the online application has been completed, you will be notified of scheduling a screening appointment for your child.
Screenings are comprehensive and help to determine whether or not your child is ready for school, so...

Once you are in the system, please select "00" or "01" as the grade for your child.
