If you are interested in a spot at the School, please fill out a waitlist form on our website and then contact us to come to an open house or arrange a tour. After you have had a chance to see the School and you have paid the waitlist fee, you may be wondering what to do next. The process is really simple and it only requires a few minutes of your time each month.
First and foremost, STAY IN TOUCH! We need to know that you are still interested in a spot, have not found other care, or, if you are pregnant, all of your new baby’s information after he or she is born. Every time you contact us, it is written on your waitlist form. Most people worry that they are going to be bothering us if they are regularly e-mailing or calling. You’re not! We enjoy getting to know prospective families and it helps us determine which candidates continue to be interested in a space.
It is very difficult to give estimates as to when we are expecting openings. The enrollment process is rather tricky, especially for infants. Current families get priority for siblings and this can take up a lot of the openings. On the other hand, families sometimes move or have other changes in circumstance that causes unexpected openings. As a result, spots can become open much sooner or later than we anticipate. This is why we encourage families to have several care options in place and to keep in touch about your interest and flexibility. Typically, offers of enrollment will start at the beginning of a month. Flexibility in your enrollment start date can improve your chances of getting an offer.
When a spot becomes available for your child, we will notify you to see if you are still interested. If you are, we will send you a formal offer email. You will need to send in a non-refundable deposit equal to one month’s tuition to secure your spot. You will also receive a packet of information including an application, a copy of this handbook, registration forms, medical record request forms, and other documents needed for your child’s folder. When your deposit and registration fees are collected, the spot is officially yours!
