Prekindergarten Application Week is now open!

Prekindergarten can help prepare your child for success in elementary school and beyond. Metro Schools offers more opportunities for pre-K than ever before, and now it is easier than ever to navigate the different options. The Prekindergarten Program Guide is a new booklet available this year online and in schools to help families see all the options in one place, including information about who is eligible for which programs and what kinds of services they offer.
