The application process for the district’s Pre-K programs is now closed. Please contact the school to learn more about having your child’s name placed on a waiting list.

Because the number of applications exceeded the space available, a random drawing was held to fill the Pre-K classes.  A list of the students’ names in the order drawn is now posted at all Edmond elementary schools, the Administrative Center, and also on the district website.

The District’s Pre-K programs include the following:

  • A free, half-day program

The half-day program is offered at 11 of our schools.  Students attend for 2 hours, 40 minutes in either the morning or the afternoon. The projected half-day schools for the 2018-2019 school year include: Angie Debo, Centennial, Chisholm, Clyde Howell, Cross Timbers, Frontier, Heritage, John Ross, Northern Hills, Washington Irving and West Field.

  • A tuition-based full-day program

The extended-day, tuition based program is offered at 7 of our schools.  There is a fee of $240 per month, payable in nine equal payments. The first month’s payment is due upon enrollment and is non-refundable. Tuition does not include the cost of lunch.  Students attend the full school day, however arrival and dismissal time can vary from site to site.  The tuition-based full-day program is held at schools that have space available.  This means that your child may attend a pre-k program at a school other than their home school where they will attend kindergarten.  Beginning in kindergarten, a transfer request must be completed to attend a school other than a family’s district assigned neighborhood school. The projected tuition-based, extended-day schools for the 2018-2019 school year include: Centennial, Clyde Howell, Cross Timbers, Frontier, John Ross, Washington Irving and West Field.

  • A free, full-day program at Title One Schools (Angie Debo, Charles Haskell, Ida Freeman, Northern Hills, Orvis Risner, Sunset, Will Rogers)

Students must live in the designated school’s attendance area to attend a free full-day program.
