Pre-K Enrollment

Our new enrollment period for the 2024-2025 PreK program is now open! Click on the link to complete the online application.   You should upload the required documents with your application so it can be considered complete. If necessary, these documents can be emailed or dropped off at the District Office.  

The West Perry Pre-K program is funded by the Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts Grant. The grant contains two primary eligibility requirements a child must meet in order to participate in the program:
  • Age eligibility - children age 3 or 4 by September 1st are eligible for the program.  4-year olds are prioritized in the enrollment process.
  • Income eligibility - Families whose income is at or below 300% of the federal poverty level 

Please review the Enrollment Prioritization Plan and Enrollment Rubric to understand how enrollment decisions are made. Transportation is provided.

In middle to late May, a district Pre-K staff member will reach out to all families who submitted a complete application and all required documentation. At that time, families will be offered a slot in the Pre-K program or informed they are on the waitlist. The initial contact will be via a phone call with a follow-up email if necessary. Upon acceptance of the classroom or waitlisted slot, the district staff member will follow-up with a mailed letter confirming the child’s placement for the 24-25 school year.
