Registration Requirements School Year 2022 – 2023

To register for School Year 2022-2023, your child must be 3 years old on or before October 1, 2021.* All 4-year-olds are also eligible. You will need to submit the following documents along with a deposit to complete your child’s registration. A deposit of $100 is required to hold your child’s spot. The deposit will be applied to the first month’s tuition. If you later decide not to enroll your child, only $50 will be refunded (unless your child receives funding from a public school district or a Preschool Advantage scholarship for another school).

All required documents must be completed and submitted along with first and last month’s tuition before a child can start in September.

*Please note:  Space permitting, children who turn 3 after October 1 can be admitted.  The child should be well along in the toilet training process and no longer in diapers or pull-ups.  Please call to speak to the Director if you have questions about this requirement.
