Is My Child Eligible For DCPS Early Childhood Programs?

Residence

Age

Your child must meet legal requirements for age eligibility in order to enroll at DCPS:

  • PK3: Your child must turn 3 years of age on or before September 30 to be eligible.
  • PK4: Your child must turn 4 years of age on or before September 30 to be eligible.

In adherence with DC Municipal Regulations, DCPS does not make exceptions for children born after September 30. Each child’s date of birth is verified upon enrollment into school. 

Children do NOT have to be fully toilet trained in order to enroll and attend DCPS Early Childhood programs.  If your child is still working on toilet-training, please work with your child’s teacher to get your child on a toileting schedule.
