Enrollment Information

Basehor-Linwood families,

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.
