Enrollment is open to all children without regard to sex, race, color, creed or national origin.
All children need to be:
Between the ages of six weeks and six years
Physically, emotionally, and socially developed to the extent that he/she is not a hazard to himself or herself and does not endanger the well-being of other children in the school
Ready for the type of group and program offered and be able to benefit from the program
Children with special needs, such as the emotionally or physically challenged, will be accepted if it is determined that they will benefit from the program and the staff is able to meet their needs in addition to the needs of the other children. (Please arrange for a consultation with the Director prior to registering your child.)
1. Schedule a Campus Tour
Schedule a tour of our campus to learn about our programs and to see the school day in action. Tours are generally offered twice weekly during the morning academic period so that you have an opportunity to observe both the children and the teachers engaged in the daily routine.
2. Submit your completed Application
Complete and submit an Application for Enrollment. In the event that we do not have space immediately available for your child, we will place your information on our waiting list and notify you when space becomes available.
3. Submit your Enrollment Package
When a space becomes available for your child, secure your spot by paying your first months' tuition and non-refundable registration fee and picking up an enrollment packet at the school. To complete the enrollment process, submit your completed enrollment packet prior to your child's first day of school.
Preparing Your Child For School
Children attending school for the first time are bound to be apprehensive the first couple of weeks. There are things that you can do to prepare your child for school, including:
Taking your child to visit the school prior to his or her first day.
Talking often about school and what a positive experience it will be.
Not letting your child see any apprehension you might be feeling about leaving your child for what might be the first time—this will only reinforce and validate his or her feelings of distress.
Emphasizing the positive aspects of your child’s day.
Having your child help label and organize clothing and bedding for the first day.
Reminders for the First Day of School
Please review these reminders prior to the first day of school!
Bring one change of clothing to be left in at school—the clothing must be labeled and in a large zip lock bag.
Bring one crib sheet (used to cover the mat) and one blanket or flat sheet (used to cover the student). Napping materials will be sent home to be cleaned at the end of each school week so that they may be returned at the beginning of the following week. All napping materials should be clearly labeled and sent a zippered pillowcase/cover.
Bring a lunch or purchase a lunch card for a hot lunch. The school observes a "low sugar" (sugar listed as fifth ingredient or lower) policy in the interest of the children's health and behavior. Please provide a nutritious lunch consisting of food from several food groups.
Have your child bring a special object, other than a toy, that will help him or her to ease the transition from home to school.
Remember to dress your child in comfortable clothing that will not be ruined by the day’s activities. Closed toe and low heel shoes are required.
Label all your child’s items with their name.
Additional items needed for the Toddler Room:
Full package of diapers
Change of clothing with and extra pair of shoes and socks
When potty training, please send three extra sets of panties or underwear and easy pull-up pants or shorts
