Preschool Registration

Registration for Preschool Starts Online

Preschool Registration is a three step process

  1. Initial Registration Request - to start the registration process with a registration request, complete the online survey (see below).
  2. Placement Offer - after the initial registration request is submitted online, notification of a potential preschool placement, or not, will be emailed within 2-3 weeks. Please note the deadline in the email.
  3. Complete and Return a Preschool Registration Packet - All the forms must be filled out and brought in together as a complete packet, in person, to an Early Childhood Adminstrative office (ECC North or South - see the top/right hand section for addresses).
