Early Childhood Preschool Application

  • District 49 preschool programs are available to children age 3 to 5 residing within District 49 boundaries. Our preschool classrooms are inclusive and welcome students of all skill levels, including children with special education needs. Preschoolers are placed in their neighborhood school as space permits.
    • To apply for preschool in District 49, and help us determine best placement for your child, please complete the following information form.

    We process in the order received.

    Your child will automatically be placed on our wait list. You will be notified if a spot becomes available. We place students throughout the school year and you may not be contacted until after school starts. Our wait lists are for the current school year only and you must re-apply each year your child is preschool age.

    The preschool programs at Falcon Elementary School of Technology and Evans International Elementary School are offered by the Community Partnership for Child Development programs. To enroll for preschool at FESoT or EIES, or to apply for Head Start, contact CPCD by calling 719.635.1536.

    Please note:

    • If your child is receiving services through The Resource Exchange, has an appointment with our Child Find team or if you have an acceptance letter or email, you do not need to re-apply here. If you have an acceptance letter or email from the preschool department, you should now proceed with online enrollment.
    • If you have moved into District 49 and your child already has an IEP from another school district, please call 719.494.8841 for preschool placement.

    We will NOT accept applications for the 2019-2020 school year (which starts in August) until AFTER our Roundup on Friday, February 22, 2019. Please click on the Preschool Enrollment page for Roundup information. Applications completed before February 23, 2019 will be placed on the 2018-2019 wait list only. If you have concerns about your child's development, contact our Child Find office at 719-494-8751.
