Registering Your Child

  • Preschool Registration begins February 27th, 2023

    The Brandywine School District offers full-day preschool through the Early Childhood Assistance Program (ECAP). The ECAP program is a free program based on the Head Start Income Guidelines. Transportation is provided for eligible students, though not all students are eligible for transportation.  Students eat breakfast and lunch at school free of charge. Families interested in half-day preschool should contact the Bush Early Education Center at 302-479-2600.

    Delaware state law requires all ECAP students must have a physical by a licensed healthcare provider prior to beginning school.  The physical must be performed within 24 months of starting ECAP. The physical form is included in the School forms link below.  

    We are no longer accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year.
