Early Childhood Overview

  • Welcome to Smyrna School District's Early Childhood Program!  

    We are currently accepting requests for enrollment for our 3 year old typically developing students, for the 2022-2023 school year!  *We are NO Longer accepting requests for 4-year-olds. *

     Three steps to submit your request for enrollment:

    1. Use the attachments below to access the Request for Enrollment Form and Registration Form that must be completed.
      1. Request for Enrollment Form
      2. Registration Form


    1. Gather your child's birth certificate, a parent/guardian’s photo ID, and a proof of residence (utility bill or mortgage/rental document)


    1. Use the following link to complete two developmental screenings online.

    If you are not able to complete the forms and/or screenings online, or print them at home to complete them, please email or call Carissa Stevens to request that the forms be emailed to you or mailed to your home. Families may also come into North Smyrna Elementary School’s main office to pick up and/or complete the forms. 

    All documents required must be submitted to Carissa Stevens via fax, email, mail, or by dropping them off in North Smyrna Elementary School’s main office.

    Full submissions are required for the child to be added to the consideration list for next school year.  This includes all 3 steps described above.

    Once a submission is received in full:

    Results of the developmental screenings will be emailed to families.  If concerns are revealed through the developmental screenings, the Early Childhood Office will contact the family to discuss the concerns and recommended next steps.

    If no concerns are revealed, families of children age-eligible for the 3 year old program will be notified by the end of July 2022, of whether or not their child has been invited to attend the Early Childhood Program next school year.

    Generally, for the 4 year old program, there are limited to no spots available. All 4 year old submissions will be placed on a waiting list, and families will be notified if a spot becomes available.

    *Current children attending the 3 year old program as a typically developing student do NOT need to complete any of the steps listed above, and will automatically be on the consideration list for enrollment for next school year.

    At any time during the school year or summer, if your child has identified delays, or if you suspect delays in their development (communication, motor, cognitive, social-emotional, and/or adaptive behavioral skills), please use this link to complete 2 developmental screenings online
