Pre-K Registration

Pre-K registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be held by appointment only on Thursday, April 30, 2020.  Please contact the school at 443-809-0800 to set up a registration appointment.  Appointment requests may also be submitted online at

Only students who are zoned for CES may enroll at CES.  IF your child's school does not have a pre-k program and you qualify for priority enrollment, you should register your child at your home school and they will forward your information to the Office of Early Childhood Education for placement in an available school.  Parents may also call the Office of Early Childhood Programs at 443-809-4313 for more information.

To be eligible for the pre-k program for the 2020-2021 school year, your child must turn 4 by September 1, 2020 (born between 9/2/15 and 9/1/16).

Space is limited.  Priority is given to students that qualify based on income or educational need. All applicants must complete the Selection Criteria Form to determine eligibility. This form, along with all other required forms will be mailed to your home after we schedule your child's registration appointment.

Your child must be present for registration. Only a parent or legal guardian may register a child.

CES offers a morning and afternoon pre-k program. The morning programs runs from 8:40-11:10 am and the afternoon program runs from 12:40-3:10 pm. Requests for a particular program are accepted but may not be honored based on availability.
