Step One

The first step to enrolling any new student who will be four-years old by October 1st for the 2024-2025 school year in preschool is to apply for Universal Preschool


If your child will be three years old by October 1st in the 2024-2025 school year, you will not be able to register through Universal Preschool. Please contact Amy Bohmer at, if interested.  Applications for three-year-old students will be considered, and students will be placed on the first of each month until full.


Step Two

Once you have applied for Universal Preschool, you will be matched with a local preschool program. If you are matched with one of SSSD's preschool programs, you will be contacted to complete enrollment for the preschool in which you are zoned through Alma Start, our student information system. 

If you have a three-year-old accepted into the SSSD preschool program, you will be able to complete the registration process through Alma Start.
