NEWS: The 2020-2021 school year will begin with 100% remote learning - including for our preschool programs. More information on attendance and learning expectations will be provided by your child's school.
The preschool programs operated by the Office of Early Learning and Title I each involve enrollment criteria. Acceptance into the Norfolk Public Schools prekindergarten program is based, in part, upon the following requirements:
1. Residency: You must provide proof that you and your child are residents of the city of Norfolk.
2. Age: Your child must be age 3 or 4 by September 30th of the school year for which you are applying to enroll.
3. Program-related eligibility criteria: The funds that support our preschool programs have various criteria that must be taken into consideration before offering acceptance to any student. In order for your child to be considered for our preschool programs, you must complete an application and submit the required supporting documents. For our three-year-old classes, students must live in a Title I school zone to be accepted (see the Title I section for a list of schools).
