The Lafayette Parish School System Pre-Kindergarten Program is offered to a limited number of children in Lafayette Parish. Funding is provided through the LA4, 8(g), Title 1, and Preschool Expansion grants. Students qualify based on grant guidelines and the remaining spots are offered to students with a tuition fee. Children registering for Pre-K must be four on or before September 30th and reside in Lafayette Parish.


Enrollment begins here with the online application for Lafayette Parish residents who are 4 years old on or before September 30th.

Once enrollment opens, it continues for the remainder of the school year.


After enrollment, a detailed email and/or letter will be sent to you to register. All registration for Lafayette Parish Pre-K takes place at the Vermilion Conference Center. All information must be accurate and verifiable. If a student is selected for admission based on application information that is later determined to be false, the student may lose his admission into the program.
