    We are FULL for the 2020-21 school year.  

    Learn more here:

    Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, all preschool classrooms will be at Terrace Learning Center, an all-preschool building. Terrace Elementary, currently a K-5 building, will be repurposed as a preschool center in the summer of 2020. This coincides with the opening of Heritage Elementary, a new K-5 building being built south of Ankeny High School off Ankeny Blvd.

    Our program is state-funded and free for your child to attend, as long as they are FOUR years old on or before September 15, 2020, and you reside in the Ankeny Community School District.

    For more information about our preschool programs, including session times, visit the "Program Details/FAQ" section.

    Pre-registration for the 2020-21 school year opened at 6 p.m. CST, Monday, January 27, 2020. Please visit the "Timeline for Preschool Registration" section for an overview of the registration process. 

    Students who are FIVE years old on or before September 15, 2020 are not eligible for our preschool program; instead they are eligible for kindergarten. Please visit the District Registrar's website for information about kindergarten registration for 2020-2021.
