Advanced Learner Pre-Kindergarten
WCPS provides access to one advanced Pre-K program. The Advanced Learner Pre-K is a Pre-K program that combines both Pre-K and K standards of instruction. Pacing is advanced, and creativity is emphasized. This program is currently located at Greenbrier Elementary School, and families must provide transportation to/from school in order to attend. To be considered for the program, apply here. Testing will begin in April. Upon review of your application, we will contact you to set up a date/time for testing. Your child must be four by Sept. 1, 2021 to qualify. Even after completing this form, you will still need to complete a Pre-K application.

Although not a requirement, it is highly recommended that your child be potty-trained prior to attending school. For both instructional and emotional reasons, it is truly beneficial to a child if that "activity of daily living" is taught prior to enrolling. If this process continues to challenge you and your child, please click for some additional resources.
