Kaune is a warm and welcoming place for children 3 – 5 years old. Our educators start with a foundation built on relationship and social-emotional learning. We support children in developing the skills they need to work, play, and interact with the other members of our school community. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach of learning, educators create classroom environments that promote curiosity, exploration, and discovery—igniting a lifelong love of learning. Our program has received national accreditation though NAEYC, which ensures programs meet their 10 standard of high-quality early childhood education.

Application Details and Deadlines
The Early Learning Center at Kaune PreK and Child Care is now accepting applications for children 3 – 4 years of age for the 2022-2023 school year. For best consideration, submit your application before April 30, 2022. All applications received by this date will be entered into the lottery. In order to qualify for our program, children must turn 3 or 4 years old before September 1, 2022.
Some applicants will be given priority status in the application process. Priority status does not guarantee a spot in our program. No more than one-third of all available spaces will be filled by these priority applicants. Once one-third of all spaces are filled, the rest of the applicants within the priority pool will be added to the rest of the applications for the final lottery. Priority status does not guarantee a spot in our program.
Priority status is applied to:
- Children who have participated in one of our programs such as Great Start, Home Visiting, or Family, Friends & Neighbors
- Children who have a sibling who previously attended the Early Learning Center at Kaune
The lottery will be drawn on May 3, 2022. Families will receive notification of the lottery results by May 17, 2022. Each family is responsible for keeping their contact information current.
If your child is selected to attend Kaune, you will be contacted by phone.
If your child is NOT selected to attend Kaune, she/he will be placed on the waitlist and will be sent a letter by mail.
Staff will attempt to contact a family twice. After two attempts, staff will note that the family has declined enrollment and will not call again.
All applications received after April 30, 2022, will be added to the end of the waitlist in the order they are received.
