preschool parent information

Kindergarten registration
Kindergarten registration is generally in late January or early February of each school year.
If we have your contact information in our database, pre-kindergarten parents will receive a mailing about registration that includes more information.

If your child is entering kindergarten in September – and you have not already contacted us – please email the information below to as soon as possible.

We need to be sent the following information from Scotia-Glenville preschool parents:
     • Parents' names;
     • Home address;
     Telephone numbers;
     Names and dates of birth for all children under age 6.

THIS IS NOT REGISTERING YOUR CHILD. Your information will be placed in a database at your child's school so that you will receive registration information.

Here's more information about registering a student.

Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE)
The Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) is available to help any family who has a child between the ages of 3 and 5 residing within the Scotia-Glenville School District. The CPSE will arrange an assessment of the child and help provide services in the areas of speech, motor or social development.

If you have concerns about your child’s development, you may want to have your child evaluated by the CPSE to determine if he/she may qualify to receive support services. The majority of the services will go directly to your home or day care and are free of charge.

Please feel free to contact Kathy Lewek at 386-4304/347-3600 or email at if you have any questions.
