The district’s pre-K programs include the following:
- A free, half-day program (either morning or afternoon)
- A tuition-based full-day program
- A free, full-day program at Title I Schools (Ida Freeman, Sunset, Orvis Risner) Parents should go to the school site to enroll. Students must live in the designated school’s attendance area to attend the free full-day program.
The tuition-based 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 concluded April 21.
Because the number of applications exceeded the space available, a random drawing was held to fill the pre-k classes.
For more information on the preK program, please contact Judy Thomas at 340-2823 or Judy.Thomas@edmondschools.net.
Children must be at least four years of age, but not older than 5 years of age, on or before September 1 of the enrollment year. Parents or legal guardians of students must be residents of the district.
Some district schools are considered early start schools, some are late start schools. For pre-k times, check with your individual school.
Tuition-based full-day pre-K is available for $240 dollars per month payable in nine equal payments. Tuition does not include the cost of lunch. The first payment is due upon enrollment to “hold” your child’s spot. Please note that parents/guardians are responsible for bringing their children to school and picking them up. There is no bus transportation.
