4-year-old Program Information

How do I register my child for Pre-K?

When may I register my child for Pre-K?

Registration will open April 27th and remain open until May 8th.   Enrollment Office from 9:00 to noon, Monday thru Thursday from April 27th to May 8th.  All registration will end on May 8th.  

When will I know if my child was drawn for a Pre-K spot at one of my choices?

Students drawn for a seat in Pre-K will be posted on our website on or after May 15th.  Lottery numbers will be posted, so parents will need to record their lottery number for the verification of a seat.  

How do I complete enrollment if my child’s lottery number is chosen?

After May 15th, enrollment packets will be mailed out to the parents/guardians of the children drawn for a Pre-K seat.  Packets will contain instructions to complete enrollment.    

What if my child doesn’t get selected for the drawing or if I missed registration?

If your child wasn’t selected for a seat through the Pre-K drawing, you may still be eligible for any remaining open seat at your child’s school or another site, if available.  Open enrollment for any remaining and available seat will begin June 15th at the District Enrollment Office.     

How are enrollments prioritized?

All Putnam City Schools staff will have first priority for Pre-K placement.  The drawing for the remaining seats will take place in 3 rounds. 

  • Round 1 will be for students who live in the school’s attendance area and have a sibling already enrolled in the school.  Siblings of the Pre-K student must all reside in the same household to qualify for sibling status priority.
  • Round 2 will be for students who live in the school’s attendance area with no sibling at the school.
  • Round 3 will be for all other students who live in the Putnam City School District
