Preschool & Toddler Prospective Families

Application and Enrollment Process
The Preschool and Toddler Program runs from September through June. In January of each year, currently enrolled families are given the opportunity to re-enroll for the fall. Open enrollment for new families begins after the re-enrollment period ends. Offers of enrollment are made on a first-come, first-served basis, in the order that applications are received.

Space in the program is limited. We strongly encourage you to apply in the fall prior to the year when you would like your child to attend.

Families interested in applying to the Preschool and Toddler Program are invited to schedule a conversation with the Program Director, Christine Missakian. Please click here to submit your inquiry. Children must be 2 by September to be eligible for our toddler program. Children must be 3 by September to be eligible for our preschool program.
