    During summer months please contact the district administration about picking up and dropping off preschool enrollment packets. These are also available at the CDC on Shriever. Packets can be completed and turned in during the school year. Ellicott Preschool students must meet the CPP qualifying factors and have a completed packet to be enrolled in the program, or have an IEP. In-District qualifying students will have priority for placement first. There are limited slots and students will be placed on a waiting list when these are filled. Enrollment packets are updated every year and available the first week in May for the next school year. These packets are then scored throughout the summer and qualifying students are placed into classrooms by the end of July, first week in August. Parents are then contacted by preschool staff after that. Please refer to the Preschool FAQ sheet link for information about the preschool program.
