We Are Creating a New Early Learning Center at Forestlawn Elementary!

As we enter the last few months of the 2019-2020 school year, we have lots of exciting things on the horizon. If you haven’t heard, Sheffield/Sheffield Lake City Schools will be expanding our Pre-school program and creating a new early learning center at Forestlawn Elementary. Knollwood will become a first and second grade building. Forestlawn will have a slight name change and become the Forestlawn Early Learning Center. The Forestlawn ELC will house our Pre-school and Kindergarten. Every year we have a lengthy wait list for our Step Up to Quality 5 Star Pre-school. We hope to substantially eliminate most of the wait list by adding two new half day Pre-school sessions. 

Knollwood will be having online registration this year for Preschool and Kindergarten starting on April 20, 2020. Registration will take place online and you can get the link by visiting If you have any questions during the school closure, please feel free to email the school secretary at [email protected]

For Kindergarten- children must be 5 years old on or before August 1st to register for Kindergarten. Cost for full-day Kindergarten will continue to be $2,000.00, is payable monthly and a $200 deposit due by May 31st. Fee waivers are available for families who qualify.  There is no charge for half-day Kindergarten.

Our 5 Star Step Up to Quality Pre-school is all set for children ages 3-5 years old. Children need to be 3 by August 1st and potty trained. We have a highly qualified staff with advanced degrees who provide services for children with and without disabilities.  Pre-school meets 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) with a morning (8:20-11:20) and afternoon (12:20-3:20) session. Tuition is $1500.00, 9 monthly payments of $150.00 and a $150.00 deposit. Please know, Pre-school registration is based on a first come, first registered basis.
