Pre-K Registration Information

Colleton County School District provides a full day Early Childhood Development Program for four year old students. Children must be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2015 to qualify for screening. Screenings will be held at Hendersonville Elementary, Cottageville Elementary, Bells Elementary, and Black Street Early Childhood Center. Parents need to go to the school that they are zoned to attend. If you are unsure about the correct school zone, contact any elementary school or BSECC @ (843) 782-4516. Parents need to come in now and fill out a registration form. You will receive a call or letter indicating your scheduled appointment time. Screenings and placement in Pre-K will be set up on a first come first serve basis. It is important to register for the screening early.


At the screening appointment parents will need to bring the following:

  • Long Form of Child's Birth Certificate (If you do not have a long form of the birth certificate we recommend that you apply for that now- no child will be screened without it)
  • Social Security Card
  • Immunization Records from Doctor's office
  • 2 Proofs of Residency (Electric bill, Telephone Bill, Cable Bill, Lease agreement)
  • Medicaid card or verification of income which includes W2 or pay stub

Special Funds from the State Department of Education are used to fund this program, therefore, not all four year olds will be accepted. A screening process will be used to determine a child's eligibility for the program.
