Registration for the 2018-2019 School Year Begins in the Spring of 2018!
We will begin accepting registrations for the 2018-2019 School Year sometime in April, 2018. The exact date that registration opens is still TBD. Your child must be 3 or 4 years old by September 1, 2018 for the age appropriate class. However, this year, we will accept a signed age waiver for those children turning age 3 or 4 by December 1, 2018, if a parent chooses to do so.
To place your child's name on our contact list and receive information regarding our Open House, Registration for 2018-2019, and other information, please complete this survey:
To register, please find the Preschool Family Access instructions below:
Please contact the office at 248.956.5080 or email at Preschool@wlcsd.org if you have questions.
Please see the GSRP and Head Start page for registration information for those programs. All children are required by law to have a valid Birth Certificate, Immunization or official Health Department signed and sealed waiver, enrollment form, and a Physical dated within 30 days of the child's first day of school. Please let us know if we can help you to acquire any of these.
We are happy to register your child for the tuition preschool programs. Most sites are generally the same from year to year, but all are subject to sufficient enrollment and space availability.
Open Registration began in May, so please return the Preschool Registration packet to the Preschool office as soon as possible to get the location of your choice. Locations are filling up quickly! Registration is processed centrally for your convenience only at the office, not the classrooms.
Grant programs are available for families who meet income eligibility requirements. Families are enrolled later in the season for the grant programs. GSRP, the free preschool funded by the state, begins enrollment in June after MDE has awarded slots to sites. Families applying for these programs will need to provide documentation of eligibility, participate in an intake interview, and comply with grant rules. Both grant programs will schedule 2 home visits and 2 conferences per year.
Head Start - Families must meet federal income guidelines (100% federal poverty level.) Children may be enrolled whose families are over income when there are additional risk factors. Ten percent of our slots for children are reserved for children with diagnosed disabilities.
The Great Start Readiness Program
The Great Start Readiness Program is funded by the State of Michigan. Children who are 4 years old, and won't be 5 years old by September 1, 2017, may be eligible for this program. Eligibility is determined by income and other factors such as developmental delays or difficult family situations. Family's income for free preschool would meet up to 250% on the guideline link below.
Tuition Programs serve all other families. Parents choose locations based on need and availability. We do enroll out of district children.
