Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration begins Monday, March 19th at Centerville. We strongly encourage early registration so we have time to predict accurate class sizes and hire adequate staff. We do not have a Pre-K program. Your child must be five on or before September 1, 2013. Registration times are 9:00 a.m. -3:30 p.m.


Enrollment Procedures

Parents will be directed to fill out the packet here at CES. No packets will be signed out this year. This will allow for accurate accounting of enrolled scholars and allocating kindergarten staffing. Please bring the required items listed below when you come to CES to enroll. We will have a location for you to complete the packet here at CES. Thanks in advance for your collaboration to ensure we adequately staff kindergarten.
