Please note that the waiting list is valid for one year. If your child is not admitted due to limited space, you will need to renew his/her name on the waiting list again.

The following are the guidelines for the 2013-2014 program year for enrolling children in age appropriate classroom settings.
  • A child must be born between September 2, 2011 to April 1, 2012 to be admitted and placed into 2½ year old groups.

Class assignments will be made by the School Administration with teacher recommendations. The School Administration reserves the right to make changes to class composition, including but not limited to, re-assigning children to other groups.
Each child will have a separate file containing enrollment, health and other confidential information. These files will be kept in locked cabinets in the School office, to ensure confidentiality. Only parents, the child's teachers and the administration will have access to these files except as otherwise required by law.
The School reserves the right to admit and/or to dis-enroll any student for any reason in its sole discretion.
