Pre-Kindergarten Registrantion Begins Feb. 9th

Prekindergarten Registration
Anne Arundel County Public Schools prekindergarten registration for the 2016-2017 school year will be held at county elementary schools beginning February 9, 2016. Public prekindergarten programs in Maryland are designed to improve the school readiness of children who are economically disadvantaged or homeless. If seats remain, schools may enroll students with other readiness needs.

Those applying for prekindergarten due to economic need must provide income eligibility verification by submitting one of the following:

– Federal Income Tax Return (1040 statement) along with documentation related to other sources of income such as child support and/or rental income.
– Current award letter for Temporary Cash Assistance or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
Registration must be done in person at the school in which the child will be enrolled.

Children enrolling in prekindergarten must be 4 years old by September 1, 2016. The following documents are required when registering a child for prekindergarten:
– The child’s original birth certificate or birth record
– A copy of the child’s immunization record
– Two proofs of residency (rental or mortgage agreement and current utility bill)
