Carl Junction Preschool

Preschool 24-25

    • At this time, your child will be placed on a WAIT LIST for preschool 24-25.
    • Do you live in the CJ School District and have a child who will be 3 or 4 years old BEFORE August 1, 2024? Your child may be eligible for preschool for the 24-25 school year.

      If interested, please contact the Early Education Center office at 417-649-5709.

      · Developmental screenings for the 24-25 school year will be held in April. Screenings are the first step in the enrollment process.

      · Spots are limited! We recommend completing the interest survey as soon as possible; however, this does not guarantee your child a spot in the program. Placement can depend on the completion of the interest form and the availability of spots.

      We feel it is important for ALL children to have an annual developmental screening, even if you are not interested in the preschool program. Please call The Early Education Center at 417-649-5709 to schedule a screening appointment.
