AFELM Kids & Schools


On-Post Schools: Fort Leavenworth has three elementary schools and one junior high school on-post. They fall under the Fort Leavenworth Public School District. If you reside off-post, you may enroll your children in an on-post school, if space is available.

Off-Post Schools: Where you enroll your children will depend on where you reside and whether you want your children to attend public or private school. Two of the more common school districts are Leavenworth and Lansing.

School Liaison Officer: Fort Leavenworth has a School Liaison Officer to assist your family through school transitions. they can be contacted at 913-684-1655 (dsn 552).

Childcare: Child, Youth and School Services (CYSS) offers daycare (full and part-time), as well as before and after school care on-post. Space is limited and care is offered based off of a waitlist. It is recommended that as soon as you know you are selected, you submit all paperwork to be placed on the wait list through Parent Central. You can always drop the slot later if you find alternate care for your child(ren). All childcare is centrally managed, to include Family Child Care (in-home child care certified through Army Child and Youth Services). If you have a preference for one over the other (i.e., CDC instead of FCC), then you MUST make your preference known when you submit your paperwork. Otherwise, you may offered a spot that you do not want for your child(ren). Contact the Parent Central office for additional information at 913-684-5138 (DSN 552).

Youth Activities: Fort Leavenworth Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) has a large variety of activities for children of all ages. Children must be registered through CYSS to participate in activities. Contact the Parent Central office for additional information at 913-684-5138 (DSN 552).

PAIR Day: Post Activities Information & Registration (PAIR) day is a semi-annual event. It provides a one-stop shop for information on social, recreational, spiritual, and educational activities and organizations in the military community.
