Campuses with Pre-K

If an RISD student qualifies for 4 year old Pre-Kindergarten, he/she can be assigned to one of these schools. If your neighborhood elementary campus does not offer Pre-K, RISD will provide daily transportation (not available for tuition students) from your neighborhood campus to your assigned Pre-K campus.
