Questions regarding enrollment?  Please email 


Although the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is at Sparta Early Childhood Center, the program is run through the Kent ISD and you will need to enroll your child in Sparta for the 2023-24 school year.  You can begin the process using the Enrollment tab above.  Be aware that their pre-registration will not be approved until after Memorial Day (so that they are not exited from their current GSRP placement).  

On June 1st, your student’s pre-registration will be approved and you will then have access to the enrollment forms in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.  Please log in on or after June 1st to complete the enrollment forms.  All forms should be completed and documents submitted by June 30th.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!  If you have any questions or need assistance, please email
