2021-2022 Preschool Registration

Preschool registration will be available online beginning February 1, 2021, at 6 p.m.

Southeast Polk uses online registration (OLR) to register students. We hope you will find this process convenient and time-saving. We ask that you complete OLR during the month of February, which will allow our staff to complete the placement process in a timely manner.  

Please register/update ALL students, in your family when registering your preschooler.

We will do our best to honor home building placements for all PK students. We give higher priority to students registered with required paperwork prior to May 31, 2021.

Please note: Four-year-old preschool is available to all students with priority given to Southeast Polk District families.  Four-year-old preschool is free to all students through the Statewide Voluntary Preschool Grant. Three-year-old preschool is limited enrollment, this will be a first-come, first-served basis. Again, SEP district families will get priority and we can not guarantee enrollment for out-of-district requests. Three-year-old monthly tuition is $200.00.  Scholarships are available for 3-year-olds via the Early Childhood Iowa Grant funding.
