Parents can apply for the two-, three- and five-day programs at Bonnie McBeth Learning Center and Ridge Elementary School and the five-day program at Liberty Elementary.

Enrollment for the general education preschool program at Bonnie McBeth is open to all District 202 children ages 3 to 5. The program is in an inclusive setting, according to the district. Students must be 3 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2019, to enroll for the 2019-20 school year.

The lottery drawing will be held on Feb. 15, and parents will hear back no later than that day regarding their child’s status.
