Pre-k: Full & Half Day Registration Open

What You Need to Know About Pre-k Registration

ESM is proud to offer free half-day and full-day pre-kindergarten programs for 4-year-old children residing in the district. 
To be eligible for pre-k in the 2024-25 school year, children must: 

  • Be 4 years old on or before Dec. 1, 2024; 
  • Be an ESM school district resident; and 
  • Have all required immunizations 

Full Day Pre-k: We have a limited number of openings in our full-day program. If the number of family pre-k applications exceeds the number of openings, the district will conduct a lottery drawing where children will be selected at random. Registration must be completed by Friday, April 5 to be part of the full-day lottery. Any students not selected will automatically be enrolled in the half-day program.

Half-Day Pre-k: ESM continues to offer a half-day pre-k in the morning and afternoon to any families who prefer that option. Transportation routes determine if your child will attend in the morning or afternoon based on bus routes. 

Register by contacting Maureen Burlingame, Registration/Census Clerk, at or 315-434-3011. If you have specific questions about the pre-k program itself, contact Park Hill School at 315-434-3800.
