Edmond Public Schools offers a free half-day pre-kindergarten program on a space available basis at all elementary sites. Classes are taught by early childhood certified teachers and each class has a teacher assistant. In addition, the district began offering a tuition-based full-day pre-k program in 2016-2017. The full-day program is held at schools that have space available which means that your child may attend a pre-k program at a school other than their home school where they will attend kindergarten.

The sign-up period for the 2017-2018 Pre-k programs will be held April 10-21 at the district’s administrative building located at 1001 W. Danforth. 

The application process is not first-come, first-served, so parents do not need to stand in line the first day of the sign-up period.

For more information, contact Jan Harris at 340-2277 or Jan.Harris@edmondschools.net.
