Pre-Registration for the upcoming school year, 2024-2025, will begin on January 15, 2025 on this site.
Alabama's nationally recognized First Class Pre-K programs accept pre-registration applications here. To be eligible to participate, a child must be an Alabama resident and 4 years old (and not yet 5) on September 1st of the school year for which he/she is being pre-registered. Pre-registration for the upcoming school year begins on January 15th.
The online pre-registration form must be completed in its entirety and requires each family to enter a valid email address to establish the account. If you need help with the pre-registration process, please reach out to the program or school where you are applying for assistance with completing the pre-registration form. If your family has more than one child eligible for Pre-K, only one family account is needed.
It is especially important that names and addresses entered into the form are spelled correctly and capitalized where needed. This information will go into our official database exactly as it is entered.
Submitting this form places your child in the Alabama First Class Pre-K random selection process. If your child’s name is drawn for a space in a program you have selected, you will be notified in mid-April and provided with a list of documents/information needed to complete the registration process. Children who are not selected will be placed on a waiting list for any future available spaces.
Note that families may pre-register children for multiple program locations. However, Madison City Schools is a public school program that restricts eligibility by school zones. Additionally, Madison City Schools does charge tuition based on the size of your household and income using Department of Health and Human Services guidelines.
Please create only one account. Duplicate accounts will be deleted and may result in delayed pre-registration.
