Early Childhood Registration

The Mehlville Early Childhood Program is a half-day program that enrolls on a first come first serve basis. Once a location is filled, any further enrollment requests for that location are placed on a "wait list", continuing in the order received. All required documents must be received by the due date for the application to be considered and accepted.

AM Session: Children must be three (3) years old before August 1, 2024 
**If your child turns 3 after August 1st, they must wait until the following school year to enroll.

PM Session: Children must be four (4) years old before August 1, 2024

If you have any concerns with your child's development or questions about registration, please call the early childhood office at 314-467-5300 or email Emma Fritz at [email protected]
