2022 – 2023 Registration Information

Registration for the 2022-2023 school begins March 14 and runs through May 26th.  For more information, or to be added to our email list, contact the preschool coordinator, Kristin Millet at kmillet@murrayschools.org 
 
Our high-quality program is open to any child between the ages of 3 and 5.  You need not be a Murray resident to participate.  Transportation to and from school must be provided or arranged for by parents. There are several options available for children who are 4 (turning 5 during the school year) and 5-year-olds missing the Kindergarten deadline- September 1, 2022.  We offer morning classes that meet two days a week on Tuesday and Thursday, three days a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday (mornings only), or four days a week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  These classes meet from 9 – 11:30 a.m. Afternoon classes meet from 12:30 – 3:00 pm, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday.  ALL classes for this age group focus on kindergarten readiness skills and provide a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated activities. 

Classes for 3-year-old children (most of whom will turn 4 during the school year) meet two days a week on Tuesday and Thursday, morning or afternoon, or on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.   There is also a three-day option that meets in the mornings on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Morning classes meet from 9 – 11:30 a.m. and afternoon classes meet from 12:30 – 3:00 p.m. The emphasis for these children is socialization, self-help skills and hands-on learning.

Registration is first-come, first-served, and will remain open as long as space is available. 

A fee of $75 must be received for each child you are registering.  This fee covers all incidental expenses during the year. You may drop it off at the ECEC. A drop box is located near the front doors. Tuition is due on a monthly basis. in order to process payments accurately, ALL payments must be placed inside a clearly labeled envelope. 

After submitting registration, you will need to then register your child on the ASPIRE system at www.murrayschools.org.  New ASPIRE users will be given step-by-step instructions at the time of registration. If you currently have older children attending school in Murray City School District you may log into your Aspire account and register a new student (your preschool-aged child) for ECEC 2022-2023. For help with this, or for any questions regarding Aspire, please call 801-264-7426 to speak with the Help Desk.
