• Scheduling a Pre-K Appointment



      Interested in becoming a Prek Student (3 Step process)

      Your child's early education is important to us and we want to ensure a safe, reliable, and valid screening and/or Evaluation for your child. It is very important that you complete each of the steps to ensure we have all the information needed PRIOR to your appointment. Otherwise it will need to be rescheduled.

      Once the 3-step enrollment process is complete, we will either text or call to set your child's appointment up (it may take up to seven to ten business days.) Sending documents multiple times will cause delays in making your appointment, so please only send your documents in one email.   

      If at any point your phone number or email address changes, it is VERY IMPORTANT you email us your updated information and change it in your FOCUS account. 

      Our appointments run back to back, so it is very important to be on time. If you are late, the appointment will have to be rescheduled. 

      Step #1 - Required Documentation

      Email the following documents and put your child’s name and birthday in the subject line of the email. Send all documents at once to earlychildhood@leonschools.net

      • 2 proofs of residence (one being a lease or mortgage) – for a list of acceptable documents, visit Proof of Residency Packet 
      • child's birth certificate

      • VPK Certificate, signed and dated by Parent/Guardian obtained from the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend  http://elcbigbend.org/  (if applicable)

      If your child has an IEP from another school district, or speech/language/therapy or other medical reports, please include those in your email.
