Subject:  Update: Application for Fall 2016 Preschool Enrollment is starting soon!

Dear Parent:

The new application for early learning programs is coming soon! As a part of a city-wide effort to ease the process of enrolling your child in preschool, you will now be able to apply online for preschool programs f offered by Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and the Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS)– both schools and community-based partners.  This application will be for children who will be ages 3 or 4 years old prior to September 1, 2016.

Two ways to apply!

Early Bird Applications Begin May 16: You can submit an application for any of the City’s over 600 preschool sites online or by bringing a paper application to select local libraries or CPS offices (listed below). No need to rush, applications collected between May 16 and June 10 will be processed for placement together, earlier submissions do not guarantee priority.

Starting June 13: Parents that applied during the Early Bird period will receive notice of their preliminary placements (available online or via mail). Parents that have not yet applied can continue to apply for programs online or in person.  Applications received after June 13 will receive immediate notice of their preliminary placement. Applications will be collected and placed throughout the summer.

Don’t have access to a computer? Applications can be submitted from any web-enabled device.
