  • Now Accepting Pre-K Applications

    Our pre-K program is an exciting opportunity for young children before kindergarten. Pre-K, or pre-kindergarten, helps children learn and grow in a supportive environment and offers activities that promote their development in areas like language, math, and social skills.

    To apply, your student must be four or five years old by Aug. 31, 2023. You may need to meet certain eligibility requirements based on age, income, or specific needs.  Once you have applied, your child will join a classroom with a caring teacher, peers their age, and will engage in play-based learning and develop important skills to prepare them for kindergarten.

    We’re here to support you throughout the application process and your child's pre-K experience.
