Enrollment and Admissions

Thank you for your interest in the Kenan Preschool. We encourage you to come to an Open House or take a tour to see for yourself how Kenan’s faculty and curriculum instill the foundational skills and confidence that encourage children to embrace a lifetime of learning. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our admissions process. If you are currently enrolled in another of the Speech School programs, please contact us before you complete an online inquiry or application.

In-House Group Observation/Individual Observation

When we receive your application, the Preschool Office will contact you to schedule your group observation session, in which we observe each applicant in a peer group setting. The informal observation lasts approximately 30-45 minutes and is designed to help the children feel comfortable. The purpose of the observation is to help determine readiness levels for preschool and whether our program seems to be the appropriate fit.

Teacher Questionnaire Form

For children currently enrolled in a preschool or childcare program, a Teacher Questionnaire Form is required in addition to the application. It should be completed by a teacher in your child’s current program who best knows your child. The Teacher Questionnaire Form will be sent digitally from the application to the current teacher’s email.

Joint Admission Testing Program

If you have JATP testing, please submit results for kindergarten application. It is not required for admissions.
