Wauconda CUSD 118 offers ongoing preschool screenings to all children aged three to five years who live within district boundaries. For more information, please see the flyer in English and Spanish and click on the link below to fill out the intake form to start the preschool screening process.

Preschool Screening Intake Form/Forma de Ingreso

Purpose of Preschool Screening

Identify students that are at-risk and would benefit from attending our WEE Kids (Wauconda Early Education) Preschool Program to develop school readiness skills and prepare them for kindergarten.

Identify students that may need an evaluation for special education services in one or more areas.

Provide families with additional resources and information about local daycares and preschools for students that do not qualify for Wauconda CUSD 118 programs and services.

Screening Process

Complete the Preschool Screening Intake Form: Preschool Screening Intake Form/Forma de Ingreso.  If you are unable to complete this form, you can contact Rosanna Korycanek at 847-526-6611 X9208 or email her at

Required preschool paperwork and screening information will be sent to you for completion. You will also be contacted to schedule a vision/hearing screening and a language proficiency screener for students who speak a language other than English.  Completed packets can be scanned and emailed to or dropped off at the Special Services
Office located at:

Special Services Office (Wauconda High School)
Door #27
555 N Main Street
Wauconda, IL 60084

Once the paperwork is received, we will review the information, and you will be contacted within two weeks by an early childhood assessment team (ECAT) member to let you know our findings and/or the next step in the process. During the summer months of June, July, and August, it may take up to 4 weeks to be contacted.

In some instances, the ECAT team may request an additional screening, which will be completed in person.


Wauconda CUSD 118 does not have open registration for preschool.

If your child is recommended for any of our preschool programs or services, you will be notified of the required registration process.

Not all students will begin the first day of school in August.  We enroll students in our preschool programs throughout the school year.
