Enrollment Process

To be considered for enrollment at the Madison South Preschool as either a child with special needs or typically developing peer the following process needs to be followed:
  1. Complete the Intake Form and Child's Education and Developmental History Form located on the Madison South Preschool webpage under Forms.  If you would like to stop by the office at Madison South Elementary, paper copies are available.  Both forms need completed and turned in to the office at Madison South Elementary located at 700 S. Illinois Avenue, Mansfield, Ohio 44907. 
  2. The Preschool Coordinator will contact you to set-up a screening appointment once the completed Intake Form and Child's Education and Developmental History Form have been received.
  3. On the day of the screening appointment, you will need to bring a copy of the child's birth certificate, updated immunization records, and current proof of residency.  If there are custody papers for your family, a copy of those would be needed as well.
  4. At the completion of the screening appointment, the results of the screening will be discussed with you and class assignment for typical peers will be determined or a play-based assessment may be recommended, if a possible disability is suspected in a developmental area.
  5. All students will need a current physical and dental checkup record on file.  The Child Medical Statement Form and Dental Examination Form are located under Forms on the Madison South Preschool webpage.  Paper copies will be given to parents with the official registration packet after the screening is completed.
If you are a typically developing peer role model, Madison Local School District will not provide daily bus transportation.  Students will need to be self-transported by the family to and from school.  Tuition for typically developing peer role models is $100 per month to attend the program.
