PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION

The online registration process begins by completing the Intent to Enroll in Preschool form.

This is best completed on a desktop or laptop computer, not a smartphone. If you don't have access to a computer, please reach out to your school and they will be happy to assist you.

Once the form is completed and received, your school will contact you from the email address provided regarding next steps. Please be sure to check junk and/or spam folders if you do not receive an email.

You will be able to schedule your screening appointment during the online enrollment process.

Parent Involvement
Research shows a strong connection between parent involvement and children’s academic success.  In fact, studies have shown that the earlier in a child’s educational process parent involvement begins, the more powerful the impact.

GCS plans various parent involvement events throughout the school year.  Make sure you are communicating frequently with your child’s teacher and following your child's school and the district on social media platforms.

We would love to have you involved in our program!

Home Visits
Each preschooler will be visited at home by his/her preschool teacher twice during the school year.  Teachers will schedule a home visit each semester to discuss your child's progress and to share your child’s preschool experiences.

Volunteering in your child’s classroom
Volunteers are welcome and needed to spend time in the classroom or work at home by preparing classroom activities.

Your help will be greatly appreciated!

COMMUNITY PARTNERS
