2018/19 Application Process

Preschool Open House | Saturday, January 20, 2018 | 9:30am – 11:30am

At the end of each date below, applications are pulled in random order for that group. 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.
