What is the process for my preschool child to be accepted into the WCCS Kindergarten program at age 5?
The parent must submit an application along with the application fee. Then a time will be scheduled for the child to be assessed with the Gesell Developmental Test, an individual hands-on test, to determine their readiness for our kindergarten program. An interview is set up with the Principal to discuss the test results.
