2023-24 Preschool Registration


2023-24 Preschool Registration

North Royalton City Schools “Lil’ Bears Preschool,” which is located at North Royalton Elementary, is primarily a center-based classroom environment that is designed to help serve students roughly ages three and four.  As a public school program, our structure is designed to meet the needs of students in the community with identified disabilities, while providing a great learning environment for all of our students. 
Our classrooms have a limited number of students per room.  We select our "typically developing peers"  through a screening process to help find strong models for our classrooms. Typical developing peer positions are tuition-based. The others are held for students that follow an Individualized Education Plan.  
We have class four days a week, Tuesday through Friday. Preschool has both an AM and a PM session. Younger children typically attend a morning session and older children the afternoon session.  The final placement determination is made during the IEP meeting for your child.

We begin our peer screening process in January. Students come in on two occasions to visit the classrooms and provide you with an opportunity to see our program.  We notify our peers by mid-March and begin to compile our waiting list at that time.

If you would like to get on our peer screening list or are interested in our program, please contact us at North Royalton Elementary at 440-582-9060,

If you have concerns about your child's development, please contact Pupil Services at 440-582-9068.
