Admission Information

Enrollment Process

  1. Contact Us
    Email Sara Wachter, Duchesne Preschool Director at or call her at 402-558-6250 to learn about the program and schedule a tour, the sooner the better. She will fill out an Interest Form over the phone so you will be in the data bank to receive enrollment information when the time comes.

  2. Take a tour
    Choose a date when you can come without your children for a tour. These are best scheduled for 8:45-9:45 on a school day because during that hour you will get to see an overview of many aspects of the curriculum. We will walk through each classroom, observing the program on a typical school day.

  3. Fill out an application
    Applications and contracts will be emailed to current and legacy preschool families during the first week of February, and to new families during the second week of February. We accept 18 children in each Nursery class with our 3 teachers, and 21 in each Pre-K class with our 3 teachers. Spaces are filled strictly on a first-come-first-served basis and a waitlist forms once a class is full.

  4. Choose a program
    Decide if you want the 2-day (Tuesday/Thursday) program, the 3-day (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) or the 5-day program. All three options are available for both Nursery (ages 3 and 4) and Pre-K (ages late 4 and 5). You may add Before Care (7:30-9: 00 am) and/or Extended Care (12:00-5:30) to any or all days your child will attend school.

  5. Submit application & contract
    Return applications and contracts as quickly as possible with a $150.00 deposit.

  6. Acceptance letters are mailed in March.
