My child is currently in the program do I have to re-apply?

  • Currently, we do not require preschool students who are already enrolled to reapply.  Parents/guardians will however receive a form to confirm that the child will return the following school year. In addition to this completed form as well as your account being in good standing, we  must receive the $250 deposit to hold your child's  spot within the program.

What are the next steps after I fill out an application?

  • Once your application and $250.00 deposit has been processed and approved, a tuition contract and transportation request will be sent to the provided address as part of admissions.  Please note that the deposit will be applied to your first month’s tuition.

What happens if the classrooms are full?

  •  A wait list will be created and families will be contracted in order of the date of your
