Find Your Way to PreK

If your child is turning 5 by September 1, 2022, they must be enrolled in kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year according to state law. Because space in City Schools’s pre-K program is limited, the school system uses a priority system for enrollment. This year, many more families will now qualify for early enrollment to pre-k because of changes to the income requirements.  City Schools uses federal guidelines based on the number of family members (including children) and the family’s total monthly income, which includes monthly earnings, TANF, child support, alimony, food stamps, benefits for immigrants, retirement, Social Security, and foster care. When registering, you will need to provide proof of income dated within the past 30 days.
