Blankets, chairs, and even a couple of campers were there as parents waited for the clock to strike nine, when Pre-K registration lines opened.

Some of the more adventurous families camped out overnight -- while others say it was enough to show up before dawn.

Shelley Wilson was at the school by 6 o'clock this morning to make sure her 4-year-old son would have a spot in a Pre-K class.

Says Wilson, "We were the third people in line, so that's awesome ... but, I mean, everybody was in good spirits, and the principal came out and checked on us and she was very nice, so it was good."

Hand-in-Hand Primary School serves almost 600 Pre-K and Kindergarten-aged children.

Parents who registered successfully say the wait was 'worth it' to see their young children get a good education.
