2021-2022 Preschool Registration
Pre-Registration is now open. Use THIS LINK to fill out a pre-registration form. Pre-registration will remain open through March 19. You will then be sent an email containing further information and any necessary paperwork to finalize registration. Our goal is to enable parents to complete as much of the process as possible online.
If you are looking for a preschool class for the current (2020-2021) school year, please contact our Preschool Registrar, Norma Chisolm via email.us to find out which campuses may have openings available and to schedule a registration appointment.
To finalize registration you will need: Parent/guardian's photo ID (such as driver's license), proof of residency (recent gas or electric bill) and immunization records. Also, within 30 days of registering we must receive a copy of the child's birth certificate. You do not need to bring these items when entering the lottery or requesting placement on a waitlist - only when registering.
Fees and Tuition
There is a $25.00 non-refundable fee due when requesting to participate in the lottery or to have your child's name added to a current waitlist. A $50.00 annual registration fee is required per family when enrolling or re-enrolling. Registration fees are waived for LESD Employees.
2020-2021 tuition for half-day classes run Monday-Friday for $325.00 per month. All-day classes run Monday-Friday for $775.00 per month. All-day tuition includes the Extended Day Program before and after class from 6:00 AM-6:00 PM. All-day tuition also includes teacher in-service days, and Extended Day camps during fall and spring breaks. A discount is offered to LESD Employees. We do not anticipate a tuition increase for the 2021-2022 school year.
