Child Development/Pre-Kindergarten Programs
CCSD offers full-day and half-day Child Development/pre-kindergarten for children who are four years of age by September 1.
Full-day Child Development programs are funded under EIA, Title One, and GOF funds. They allow the district to provide full-day instruction for eligible students. CCSD's preschool programs are designed to develop skills necessary for success in the regular public school curriculum with a focus on emergent literacy, early numeracy, science and social studies. Through full day and half day inclusive preschool programming, the needs of bilingual, English for Speakers of Other Languages, and preschool children with special education needs are met.
How to Apply for January 2014 Enrollment
CCSD is expanding its options for 4-year-old students. We are currently accepting applications for these new Child Development/Pre-Kindergarten classes, which are scheduled to begin this January.
The new classrooms are located at:
- Pepperhill Elementary
- Lambs Elementary
- North Charleston Creative Arts Elementary
- Charleston Progressive Academy
- Springfield Elementary
- James B. Edwards Elementary
- Whitesides Elementary
Parents should submit an application at one of these schools. In addition, we are continuing to enroll students in the CD classrooms at Garrett Academy, Jane Edwards, Dunston, and St. James-Santee.
During this academic year, we are not able to offer transportation for new students in these expanded classrooms.
Submitting an application does not guarantee enrollment in a Child Development Program. Selection priority is given to children who demonstrate an academic and developmental need. Children will participate in an individual screening. Appointments will be set by the school. Parents will be contacted by the school regarding notification of their child’s acceptance into the program.
Spaces are limited, so submit your application now.
Parents must present the following documents:
- Family Survey
- Copy of a legal birth certificate, proof of residency, certificate of immunization, and social security card (if applicable.)
