Families can now submit 2021-22 preschool pre-registration

Update (February 1): Preschool pre-registration is now closed. If you would like to be added to the preschool waiting list, please contact Briar Glen Elementary School at (630) 545-3300.


Families interested in having their child attend Community Consolidated School District 89 preschool in the 2021-22 school year can now fill out a pre-registration information form. The form is available at

Families should fill out the pre-registration and submit the preschool residency documents by 5 p.m. Monday, February 1, in order to be placed in the 2021-22 preschool lottery. (Returning preschool students do not participate in the lottery and will register with other returning students.)

The pre-registration form collects some basic information and provides the opportunity to share documents that confirm the family lives within district boundaries.

In order to show residency, families must provide one item from Category One, and two items from Category Two.

CATEGORY ONE (one item): Mortgage papers; Signed lease agreement; Real estate tax bill; Affidavit from a local resident who attests to the registrant living with them at no cost, along with one of the above documents

CATEGORY TWO (two items): Gas or electric bill; Driver's license; Home/apartment insurance papers; Auto registration; Voter registration

After filling out the pre-registration form, in order to reserve a space in the lottery, families must also submit the following documents in-person at Briar Glen Elementary (1800 Briarcliffe Boulevard, Wheaton) by 3:30 p.m. Friday, February 5:

  • An original birth certificate (not a photocopy)
  • A deposit check for $143 total ($63 yearly fee, $30 technology fee, $50 snack fee). If your student is not selected in the preschool lottery, your check will be returned.
  • Any residency documents you were unable to submit electronically.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, families should call the school at (630) 545-3300 to arrange a time to submit documents.

For the 2021-22 school year, there will be limited openings for 3- and 4-year-old children. Once the district receives the pre-registration information, required paperwork, and $143 fee by February 5, the student will be placed in a lottery for open spots.

Families that are selected will be notified by mail how to complete the registration process for the 2021-22 school year. Families not selected in the lottery will be placed on a waitlist.

The CCSD 89 preschool program is located at Briar Glen Elementary. CCSD 89 preschool classes take place Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 11:10 a.m., or 12:30 to 3:10 p.m.

The preschool is open to all families that live within CCSD 89 boundaries. Tuition is $334 per month.
