Navigating the DC PK Lottery ( weekend option)

  • Have you heard about free DC pre-kindergarten, but haven’t yet done the research to figure out how it works or how to enroll your child? Confused about charter schools versus public schools?

  • Is your child 2 or 3 years old and you want to learn about the lottery process, but are dreading combing through DC government websites to learn more and make your choices?

  • Pretty savvy about DC public school options (DCPS and charter), but not sure which school is right for your child?

Whatever your level of knowledge, “Navigating the DC Pre-Kindergarten Lottery” will provide insight on DC’s pre-k programs, the lottery system, and your family’s options, helping you find the right fit for your child.  The seminar will cover basic eligibility and lottery info, different pre-k models such as Montessori and bilingual programs, sources of data on schools, and tips for finding a school that fits your needs.
