The 2019-2020 School Year Application is Now Open.

 Will your child be 3 or 4 years old by September 1st, 2019? If so, now is the time to apply for fall preschool enrollment!

Family Resource Centers

Family Resource Centers are a place for all Chicago families seeking more information or in-person support on preschool enrollment. Our friendly staff will help you answer questions about your child’s application.

For families with a preschool placement at a Chicago Public Schools site, if the school is not open (due to summer hours), staff at Family Resource Centers will also verify income, employment, and birth record documentation. (Families with a preschool placement at a community-based site will verify their documentation directly at the site location.)

At least one Family Resource Center is available year-round for families verifying their documentation.

For the 2018 - 2019 school year, Colman, 4655 S. Dearborn St., is open from 9AM - 5PM, Monday - Friday.

In the summer months, about a dozen Chicago Public Libraries across the city serve as Family Resource Centers. All summer visitors will have access to internet and computers. If a family would like to use a library computer, the user must have a library card. Anyone with a valid ID with name, photo and Chicago address can sign up for a library card on site.

Applications will be taken 30 minutes after opening and will end 30 minutes before closing. 

Bilingual support available.
