0-3 Program: Your child must be at least 6 weeks of age. We currently have a waitlist for our 0-3 tuition-paying program. However, we encourage parents to submit a waitlist application. In order to submit a waitlist application, you must submit two (2) proofs of the City Schools of Decatur residence and a $50 waitlist fee. We begin the registration process for each academic year in late February. If your child is offered a spot for enrollment, you will be provided an enrollment packet which must be submitted to the front desk along with a $50 enrollment fee.
Pre-K program: Your child must be 4 years old by September 1, in order to be eligible for the Pre-K program. Between the months of February and March parents must complete and submit an online Pre-K application (www.csdecatur.net). A lottery is held in March to determine children awarded pre-K slots. Children not selected during the lottery will be placed on the waitlist. Any parent registering for pre-K after the March lottery must visit the school and submit a hard copy of the registration packet. Please email Cynthia Andrews for additional questions regarding pre-K enrollment.
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.
