Start your child’s education off right! Enrolling in prekindergarten (pre-K) is one of the best steps that a family can take to support a child’s social and academic development. Most pre-K programs are free and full-day (see details below).
Pre-K enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year starts February 6, 2017 at 8 a.m. We encourage families to enroll students as soon as possible as pre-K seats are limited. There are limited enrollment protections for neighborhood students, siblings of students already at the school and children of Tulsa Public Schools employees, but only from February 6 – March 31.
Free and all-day except where noted otherwise.
Call 918-746-7500 for space availability.
*Due to construction Emerson will be relocated to 5402 N MLK Blvd. (ECDC Bunche building) for the 17-18 school year.
**Due to the high interest in the Eisenhower and Zarrow PreK programs there will be a 25% reserve for siblings and Tulsa Public Schools employees; the remaining seats will be filled using a lottery selection process.
You can access the enrollment form from any device with Internet access. We encourage families to enroll from home or a location where the enrollment process can be completed. The application takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
During the enrollment process, you will be asked to enroll to attend your neighborhood school or an Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) site. If your neighborhood school is not your first choice, the form allows you to identify your preferred school.
Scan or photograph documents and upload them to the enrollment form at the time of submission. TPS can only confirm a pre-K seat when all documents have been submitted. See Online Enrollment Instructions (Spanish)
If you need assistance with the enrollment process, you may visit the TPS Enrollment Center (see address and hours at the bottom of the page). Some schools’ staff may be available to assist with online enrollment. Please contact your neighborhood school’s staff to confirm.
When seats are available, automated notices will inform parents that school enrollments are approved.
If space fills up, the student is placed on a pre-K waitlist. Enrollment center staff will contact families to confirm this status and review options. Families who completed the enrollment process in February or March will be contacted in April. Families who completed the enrollment process in April or later will be contacted starting in May.
In the event of low enrollment at a specific site, Tulsa Public Schools may choose to combine pre-K programs at a single location. If your student is impacted, we will notify you within 24 hours of that decision and provide other enrollment options.
