0-3 Program: Your child must be at least 6 weeks of age. Parents are offered a spot in the 0-3 tuition-paying program based on waitlist status and classroom availability. Parents are typically notified in March of every year if their student has received a spot. Parents must complete and submit an application packet along with the applicable registration fee ($50.00) to College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center.
Pre-K program: The child must be four (4) years of age on September 1, 2024, to be eligible. Children five years of age prior to September 1st must register for kindergarten. Parents/Guardians must complete an online application prior to submitting supporting documents to College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center. If you are in need of assistance to complete the enrollment form online, parents may contact the Wilson Center at 404-371-3601.
Required Documentation for Enrollment: Parents must provide a certified birth certificate from the county or country where the child was born, proof of the child’s immunization (DHR Form #3231), two proofs of residence in the City of Decatur, picture ID of the parent/guardian, and a copy of the child’s social security card.
Waitlists: CHECLC maintains a 0-3 and a Pre-K waitlist for each program. We give sibling preference on the waitlist and a 10% discount on the 2nd child (and any additional child) when both children are enrolled in the 0-3 program. The discount is applied to the older child enrolled in the program. Children enrolled in the preschool program at College Heights and the Frasier Center at DHS automatically matriculate to the Pre-K program the following year.
