All registration is completed online. In addition to the online registration the child's physical form signed by the doctor and up-to-date immunization record are required. These forms need to be turned into the Community Education Office before the child can start school.

Pinckney Community Education Preschool program provides a warm, nurturing setting that encourages children to learn through developmentally appropriate hands-on learning experiences. Our structured and literacy-rich environments allow children to explore the world around them, while they grow socially, emotionally, and academically. With learning concepts in math, science, language, literacy, music, and art, our students are exposed to many educational experiences. A Pinckney Schools preschool experience includes exploration with cooperative learning and playing with peers. Focused on kindergarten-readiness, our certified early-childhood teachers consult with our kindergarten teachers in order to provide children with important kindergarten-readiness activities, especially those which are focused on pre-reading and early writing experiences. Set within our district’s elementary buildings, our students are exposed to and become familiar with what our quality buildings have to offer.
