    2. Your child must be 4 years of age on or before September 1st.
    3. All families with completed applications will receive a letter with a date and time to bring your child to Central for a "play-based screening" which will be sometime in May or June.  Your child should attend the screening in order to be considered for admission to our program.
    4. We will send out letters of admission soon after testing by early July.  If your child does not get admitted, they will be placed on our waiting list. 
    5. Central is a needs-based South Carolina Department of Education CERDEP program.
