How To Register

Preschool Registration

Registration takes place twice each year. Registration for the Fall Session is held in early spring, based on space availability and on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for the Winter/Spring Session is held in late fall. If your child is already enrolled in the Fall Session, a letter is sent home informing you that tuition for the Winter/Spring Session is due. Registration is required for each session; classroom changes may be possible if spaces are available.

  • Residents currently enrolled in the Preschool Program are given priority registration.
  • Children must be age appropriate by September 1 to enroll in the Preschool Program.
  • Registration for the Fall Session will be accepted until October 1.
  • Registration for the Winter/Spring Session will be accepted until February 1.

Please bring proof of residency, a copy of your student’s birth certificate, and $100 deposit.

For information about registration, please contact Molly Jacobsen, Preschool Director, at 847-685-4400 or mjacobsen@prparks.org.
