How to Enroll

We enroll children in our year-round program on a rolling basis as space allows. Currently enrolled families and district employees receive first priority for available spots. We maintain a waiting list for interested families.

We are currently full in all our classrooms except the school-day preschool (M-Th) for September/October but anticipate some movement as children develop and/or family situations change. We have space to open another preschool classroom if needed, but we have put a pause on those plans until we can get fully staffed. All early childhood centers in the area are experiencing unprecedented difficulty hiring this fall. If you know a good candidate to work at Jenkins, please have them call 734-424-4180 ext. 1413!

If you would like to let someone know you are interested in childcare when space opens up or want to enroll a future infant, please contact the Jenkins main office at 734-424-4180, opt. 5.

Eleyo is a software program Dexter Community Schools uses to receive payments for child care, yearbooks, athletic fees, and community education classes. To use it, parents set up a family account, which we will link to your child's contract after your signed contract is executed. You can add your spouse/partner and other children to the same account. 

The $100 registration fee can be paid prior to contract execution; we recommend you don't pay until we confirm your spot. 

Students/families enrolled prior June 2021 and Dexter Community Schools staff do not pay the $100 registration fee.
