For New/Prospective Families:
Our initial registration took place on  February 9. Admissions are continuing on a rolling basis based on availability. Currently, there are limited openings available in some of our classes. Please call the preschool office for details. While some classes are full, there are always changes between now and the start of school next September. For this reason, we welcome and encourage your application for the waiting list. There is no charge to do so.

  • To maximize your chances for enrollment, we urge you to be flexible and indicate as many choices as possible for your child.
  • Class openings will be offered to families on a first come, first served basis or in order of their position on the waiting list. Children may be wait listed for more than one class.
