Early Learning Registration (Preschool, Early Kindergarten, Full Day Kindergarten))

In response to the COVID 19 outbreak and the governor’s order to close schools through the end of this school year, Early Learning registration will look a bit different.


Turn in of registration forms for Preschool, Early Kindergarten and Full Day Kindergarten begins Monday, April 20th, 2020.  A priority window for Preschool and Early Kindergarten begins on Monday, April 20th, 2020 and closes Monday, May 18th, 2020

  • Registration packets can be dropped off in the secure drop box in the Early Learning Center foyer (27515 120th St E, Buckley, WA 98321) Monday – Friday between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm.  Please place your paperwork in one of the envelopes marked with your school name provided at the ELC prior to placing it in the box to prevent forms from getting lost.
  • Registration packets can be mailed to the WR Early Learning Center at P.O. Box 1684, Buckley, WA 98321 – if postmarked by May 18th they will receive priority consideration.
  • If you wish to email your completed enrollment packet, please email it the following address, noting your school in the subject line:  enrollment@whiteriver.wednet.edu
  • Registration packets for Elk Ridge or Wilkeson will be marked with receipt date and forwarded to those schools, but should also be dropped off or mailed to the WR Early Learning Center.

If you did not pick up a registration packet prior to schools closing, you can print the forms from our website.  Enrollment forms may be found in English, Spanish, Russian and Ukranian at https://tinyurl.com/yb9cda8u

You can pick up a blank packet from the WR Early Learning Center, Monday-Friday between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm. 


Registration packets for Preschool and Early Kindergarten that are received or postmarked after May 18th will be honored as space allows.  All Kindergarten packets will be accepted, regardless of the submission date.


If you are coming into the WR Early Learning Center to pick up, or drop off, registration packets, please practice social distancing.  If you are picking up a packet you will need to fill it out in your car or at home. Staff will not be able to answer in-person questions about the forms, or enrollment process.
