    • The Early Childhood & Language Support Center is located at 606A East Bethany Drive, next to the Dillard Special Achievement Center.
    • At the center, an oral language proficiency screening will be administered to your child to determine language proficiency.
    • Bilingual staff members are available to assist you in completing the enrollment paperwork.
    • After you child has completed language assessment, you will return to your home campus to complete the enrollment process.
