  • My incoming 2023-24 kindergartner is a CURRENT TIGER CUBS PRESCHOOLER.


    You do not need to do anything else for enrollment until spring/summer 2023. At that time, you’ll be able to confirm online enrollment information for incoming kindergartners.

    Current Tiger Cubs preschool families interested in the Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program for kindergarten must complete our online enrollment process starting Nov. 1, 2022.


  • My incoming 2023-24 kindergartner does not live within district boundaries.


    If you live outside of the WDMCS boundaries, you must open enroll, even if you are a current Tiger Cub or community partner preschooler. You must fill out and turn in the open enrollment application BEFORE completing the online enrollment process. 

    To open enroll a 2023-24 kindergartner with WDMCS: 

    1. Fill out a 2023-24 open enrollment application. These will be processed in the order they are received. 
    2. Beginning in January 2023, families will receive communication regarding open enrollment approval, as well as instructions for completing the online enrollment process.   

    For questions regarding open enrollment, contact Peggy Epstein at 515-633-5025 or epsteinp@wdmcs.org.
