    • Bring your child to Pre-K Screening.


    Every child who registers for Pre-K must be screened.  The process will include asking your child some questions, looking at some pictures together, and providing a dental screening. Once screening is complete, we will look at each child’s information for placement. Although every effort is made to place all children, some children who apply may have to be placed on our waiting list.


    It is very important that your child comes for the screening during the screening days. Children who aren’t screened will not be considered for placement in the Pre-K program.
