    How do I enroll my child?
    Complete and return the application along with required documents.  You will then be contacted for an appointment if you qualify or if we need additional information.

    What happens when the program is full?
    Children are placed on a prioritized waiting list and spaces are filled from this list as room becomes available.  Parents will be contacted when there is an opening.

    When will my child attend (days & times)?
    When children are enrolled, parents will be able to choose the morning or afternoon session (until rooms are filled). One the program is full, parents will be given the next slot available.

    Enrollment Steps

    1. Enrollment: Enrollments are done in May and the beginning of the school year.
    2. Health Requirements: Prior to starting, your child will need Immunizations, a Medical well child exam and a dental exam. Forms will be given out during the enrollment.
    3. Home Visits: Beginning late August, teachers will contact parents to set up a home visit. This visit is to find out more about your child and to talk about your goals for him/her.
    4. Orientation: An orientation is scheduled the day before classes start. This is an opportunity for parents to see the classrooms and the school.
