At the end of the business day on each posted date, applications are pulled in random order. Children are then placed in classes according to the preferred days and times listed on the application. When all classes are full, remaining applications are kept on file throughout the year and used to fill unexpected openings. Every attempt is made to place children in their preferred class. However, we reserve the right to create optimal learning communities by balancing classes according to gender and age.

Families are notified of their placement by the end of February. A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required within ten days of acceptance. This amount is applied to second semester tuition.
