Information for Preschool Families


David Douglas preschools are offered to families who are residents of David Douglas School District and live in the catchment area. 

If your student is accepted into one of our David Douglas preschools and your family moves outside of the District during the school year, they will no longer be able to continue attending. The only exception to this rule is when families move when there are 6 weeks or less remaining in the school year. 

It is an expectation that all of our students maintain 90%+ attendance to participate in our preschool program. View these helpful resources below from Attendance Works.
