Enrollment Requirements School Year 2023 – 2024

To register for the 2023-2024 school year, your child must be 3 years old on or before October 1, 2023. * 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 $100 deposit is required to reserve your child's spot. The deposit will be used toward 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 to another school).

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

*Please note: Space permitting, children who turn 3 years old after October 1 may be admitted. The child should be well advanced in the potty-training process and should no longer be in diapers. Please call to speak with the Director if you have questions about this requirement.
