Before School Enrollment (Starting Classes)

After being accepted into the Preschool Program, families work with their assigned Family Service Worker to submit all required documents for school enrollment. See below for more information on the process of enrollment in Prince William County Schools.

Families are able to submit needed documents through email, direct upload, text message, or in-person. Contact the Preschool Office for more information at 703-791-8708 or PreKPrograms@pwcs.edu.

PWCS Online Student Registration

Once officially accepted, families complete PWCS Online Student Registration. Parents must register for a ParentVUE account to complete the school registration process.

Parents select the "Preschool Registration" Online Packet to begin the Online Registration, making sure to select the correct school year.

Parents upload the following:

  • Copy of child's birth certificate
  • Proof of residency
  • Copy of a parent photo ID
  • Immunization records
  • Physical exam

See detailed information about acceptable proofs of residency and verification documents on the application page.

For assistance with creating a ParentVUE account, completing the Online Registration, or needed documents, please contact the Preschool Office.

Parent Orientation

Families are asked to review the Preschool Parent Orientation video and refer to the Parent Handbook (PDF) for more detailed information. Once completed, parents inform their Family Service Worker who will email Parent Responsibility and Consent forms to sign.

Initial Teacher Home Visit

Before children start classes, the teacher will complete a home visit. Visits are scheduled with families the week before school starts. The initial home visit is a great time for families to share information about their child, ask questions, and learn more about the teacher.

Typically families are given bus information during the home visit.

Medical Information

Before school enrollment, complete physical exams and immunization records must be submitted. If children have medical conditions or food allergies, additional forms will be required.

During the school year the preschool office will work with families to ensure children have dental exams and necessary medical follow up.
