Enrollment Now Open for CCS Pre-K

  • All early learners who will be 4 years of age by September 30th who reside in the Columbus City Schools District have the opportunity to enroll their children in a high-quality PreK program with the Division of Early Childhood Education
  • Classes for our PreK students will begin on Monday, September 15* and all students will attend remotely at that time.  If and when the District moves to face to face instruction, all students will have a seat in the school building of their enrollment.
  • Like all CCS students, instruction will be provided virtually until at least October 27th, 2020
  • PreK students and families will have the opportunity to participate in engaging interactive lessons with highly qualified Ohio certificated teachers and instructional assistants 
  • The virtual programming will include interactive lessons, hands-on activities and engaging learning opportunities aligned with the five learning domains identified in the Ohio Early Learning Standards which can be completed at your child’s own pace.
  • Students will also have the opportunity to participate in enrichment activities provided by their teachers and local community partners…more information coming soon.
  • Once enrolled, families should expect to hear from their school principal with back-to-school information beginning the week of August 17. Principals will have school-specific information on when, where, and how to pick up Chromebooks (if needed), instructional materials, and other necessary items to start the year. 
  • Space is limited!  Enroll today!  Families interested in PreK must complete the Online Registration and schedule an enrollment appointment.  Due to social distancing, all appointments are being conducted virtually at the scheduled appointment time.  Families will receive an email at least one day prior to their appointment with instructions and an invitation to join a virtual enrollment meeting online. For questions regarding Enrollment, please email
  • If your child will be 5 years old by September 30th, he/she is not eligible for PreK but is eligible for Kindergarten.
