Children must be between 2 1/2 – 6 years of age and toilet trained. (NO PULL UPS OR DIAPERS ALLOWED). We welcome all children regardless of ethnic background, nationality, or religion.
Parent and child are required to visit the school prior to enrollment. This is to determine whether the preschool will be able to meet the particular needs of both parents and the child. This is also a good opportunity for the parents to view the school and ask any questions about our programs.
If you wish to enroll your child and space is available, you will receive a packet of forms. This packet contains a Parent Handbook, which should be read completely, and Enrollment Agreement at the back of the Handbook signed by both parents. All forms must be completed and returned to the preschool office along with Physician's form by the first day of school.
For your convenience, you may download the Registration Forms, and fill it out before coming to the school for your initial visit.
Our Parent Handbook includes information on our NAEYC accreditation, preschool curriculum, goals, school calendar, and school policies.
