Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Information
Hello and welcome to the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten informational page. Thank you for your interest! Collierville Schools has been notified by the Tennessee Department of Education that the district will have two Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Programs during the 2022-23 school year held at Sycamore Elementary.
Voluntary Pre-K is an educational program that school districts may apply for on an annual basis and is funded by state and local funds. The purpose of the program is to provide your four-year-old child(ren), identified as being income-eligible, with the access to a quality educational environment, in hopes of preparing he or she for future educational success. The program is of no cost to the parent(s)/caregiver(s).
We are beginning the screening process now for the 2022-23 school year, screening will be completed electronically by submitting the form below. Applicants must reside in Collierville, TN and be FOUR (4) years of age on or before August 15, 2022.
In the event that programs are not filled with income-eligible four-year-old children, we are accepting three-year-old children to be on a waitlist.
