3 Year Olds
Now Enrolling 3-Year-Olds


At this point in time, all centers are at enrollment capacity. As the first day of school draws near and families decide where their child will attend, space may become available, and we will be able to enroll children from our waitlist. Qualifying families who were not accepted are automatically added to our waitlist and notified of their application status via email.

For additional information, please contact us at 210-206-7735 or prek4saenrollment@sanantonio.gov. Our offices are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
