We are now accepting applications for Gardendale Early Learning Program. We offer pre-kindergarten for 4-year-olds as well as kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades — all powered by the same philosophies and methodologies as Pre-K 4 SA.

If you are a Pre-K 4 SA alumni and would like to continue the same level of high-quality education in K-2, apply to the Gardendale Early Learning Program (Powered by Pre-K 4 SA) 2023-2024 school year.

Enrollment is first-come, first-served, and there’s no need to gather any official documentation at this point. We encourage all families to apply as early as possible and start your young learner on a pathway to success – in prekindergarten and beyond.

The COVID-19 pandemic has modified and retooled some of our activities and protocols to keep safety for our young students, their families, and our staff a priority. Check out our current safety protocols here.
