We are excited to start the application process to be considered for enrollment to our Early Learning Center for the 23-24 school year. Any family with children that will be 4 by August 31, 2023, residing within the Basehor-Linwood School District boundaries can apply for preschool for our 2023-2024 school year which will begin on our first day of school, August 15, 2023. We will also be accepting applications for students who will be 3 by August 31, 2023. The three-year-old program will be provided if space and resources are available.
We encourage any families wishing for their child to attend to complete the application to enroll as soon as possible to help secure their spot for the upcoming school year. Please be sure to read through the application to enroll process below. Students will be placed according to the order that applications are received, returning students, special education needs, at-risk qualifications, and space availability. We will notify families if their child’s application has been accepted/approved for enrollment or if they will be placed on our waiting list at the end of each month beginning in February.
Basehor-Linwood Early Learning Center Program Facts:
New Students: All students that wish to enroll for the first time at the ELC for the 23-24 school year will need to have completed the application to enroll and pay the $60 application/materials fee. In addition, all new students need to be scheduled for a developmental screening in order for your application to enroll to be processed. Screenings can be scheduled by calling our office at 913.662.7150. Space is limited within our program and children are placed based on availability. Families will be notified if their child is accepted into the program or placed on a waiting list. Once a child is accepted, parents will be notified on how to complete the official enrollment process via Skyward.
Returning Students: If you missed the application window for current students, you can follow the same process by completing the application to enroll for 23-24. The only step you will not need to complete is signing up for a screening.
PK3: If enrolling in PK3 and turning 3 prior to June 1, 2023, screenings will be scheduled for March 8, March 22, April 14th, or May 12th.
Late PK3 birthdays: If your child turns 3 after June 1, 2023, screenings will be scheduled in July 2023.
PK4: If enrolling in PK4, screenings will be scheduled for February 24th, April 14th, or May 12th.
*If your child turns 5 on or before August 31, 2023, they are not eligible to enroll in our preschool or employee childcare program.
Please call our office at 913-662-7150 to schedule your child’s screening appointment.
