Parents can begin enrolling their children in Kanawha County Schools preschools in March at enrollment fairs across the county. The first enrollment fair is on March 1, 2017, and fairs go through April 3, 2017. Childcare is provided during each enrollment fair. These fairs are only offered in March and April and are the easiest way to register a child. Each fair features stations on enrollment application assistance, a nurse’s station, a dental appointment center and additional community resource tables. All fairs are 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Preschool is a part of Kanawha County Schools and there is no cost to parents.
