Pre-K Selection

Receive Preschool Offers

During the selection process, a computerized lottery randomly fills the seats available at each school. Students who do not receive an offer are randomly assigned a number on the waitlist for each school.

Accepting and Declining Offers

Online applicants will accept or decline offers via their online account. Paper applicants can accept or decline offers by calling the CEL Hotline or via the online account that was opened for them.
