Registration for Anderson School District Five’s 3 & 4 year old programs will take place Thursday, February 17th from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at South Fant and West Market Early Childhood and Education Centers.

2.                          Full-day 4 year olds – child must be four years old on or before September 1, 2011 and the parents must be working or in school.

When parents come to register, they must bring the child’s legal Birth Certificate, proof of residence and food stamp case number and /or Medicaid number (if applicable). We request you bring your child’s social security card.  However, if you do not wish to give us the social security number, a student identification number will be assigned for your child. 

You will need to register your child at the school they are zoned to attend.  If they are zoned for T.L. Hanna High School, you will register at South Fant Early Childhood and Education Center.  If they are zoned for Westside High School, you will register at West Market Early Childhood and Education Center. Please direct any questions to South Fant Early Childhood and Education Center at 260-5225 or West Market Early Childhood and Education Center at 260-5200.

Completing the registration process does not guarantee a child a spot in the program. Eligibility for South Fant or West Market is based on the academic, financial, and developmental needs of the child.  Screenings will be held in the spring and notification of acceptance will be mailed by July 1, 2011. There are not enough slots for every student who qualifies, so priority is given to students who can benefit the most.
