Pre-Kindergarten Eligibility & Registration

Pre-kindergarten enables young learners to develop foundational academic and social skills that will help them to be more successful in kindergarten and beyond. The Early Childhood Academy provides a full-day, pre-kindergarten program, to prepare students for kindergarten and help them excel academically. 

WSISD's Early Childhood program provides developmentally appropriate curriculum that supports the needs of the whole child in a safe, accessible environment that respects and supports diversity. Research-based, early childhood best practices provide students with a setting that meets their individual needs and creates family partnerships. 

Pre-kindergarten students must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2021.
