Parents interested in enrolling their children in the Wandell Early Learning Center can now begin the process online. The online application is available on the WELC web page and on Elizabethton City Schools social media. Parents applying online will be contacted by the WELC Office regarding required documentation.
Pre-registration day will take place on Friday, April 12 from 8 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the WELC, located at 800 Siam Road. All applicants – whether or not they have completed the online application – will need to attend pre-registration day with their child to participate in health screenings. All required documentation should be submitted on or before April 12. Following pre-registration day, names of applicants will be drawn at random, with consideration for grant eligibility requirements.
“We want to make it easier on parents and hope that having an online application and lottery drawing will eliminate stress and allow parents to get everything turned in on time,” said WELC Director Eric Wampler.
Parents are also welcome to stop by the WELC to begin the application process. The application and a list of required documentation are available on the WELC web page.
