Any child, who is 4 years old on or before September 1, and either lives in the La Crosse School District attendance area or non-residents that complete the Open Enrollment application through the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is eligible for preschool.
Our preschool program is a 2.5-hour program, Monday through Friday, housed at several daycare centers and schools throughout the district. The preschool program is free to any eligible child.
If you have questions about the program, need help in deciding on a site to have your child attend, or have registration questions, you may visit the 4-Year-Old Preschool webpage or contact the Preschool Office.
If your child is currently not enrolled in the School District of La Crosse Preschool Program, you can begin the enrollment process either online or at the Hogan Administrative Center.
