PCSSD's Pre-K program is a free, standards-based program that aims to build strong foundational skills that help prepare students for kindergarten. It is open to qualifying students who turn three or four on or before August 1 of the enrollment year. Slots are limited and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pre-K will accept applications for the 2020-2021 school year starting on January 13, 2020. Parents of new Pre-K students can apply at any elementary school that has a Pre-K program. If you have any questions regarding application for Pre K, please contact Ebony McKinzy in the Pre-K Office at 501.234-2065. Completed applications are processed in the order received.
