About WCPS Pre-K


Wayne County Public Schools works hard to meet the needs of all students PK – 12, and we recognize that early intervention is the key. As such, we provide early learning opportunities for students throughout the district. 

Pre-K services are designed to provide students in five domains. Those domains are:
  • Approaches to play and learning
  • Emotional and social development
  • Health and physical development
  • Language development and communication
  • Cognitive development 
Children in NC Pre-K
  • Learn about letters, colors, shapes and numbers
  • Learn to develop positive relationships with peers and teachers
  • Listen to stories and learn about books
  • Explore math, science, art and music
  • Expand language skills
  • Develop a positive sense of self and an enthusiasm for learning
  • Explore and play outside daily
Pre-K students are served for a full school day and operate on the same calendar as traditional public schools. In order to be eligible for Pre-K a child must turn 4 years old by August 31 and be entering Kindergarten the following year. Parents complete applications and are selected by state determined criteria. If you are interested, applications are available on this website, at the School Street Early Learning facility, and at the Wayne Partnership for children.
