admissions policy

All children will be considered for admission regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, or ancestry. The child is expected to be toilet-trained and the appropriate age for the class. Children must be 3 years old by December 1st of the school year to enroll in the 3 year old class and 4 years old by December 1st of the school year to enroll in Pre-K class. Exceptions are made at the discretion of the Preschool Staff.


The first month of preschool will be considered a trial period to ensure that the child is ready for the experience and able to benefit from the program.  The teacher and director may suggest that a child who is not ready re-enroll at a later time. 

It is important that a child’s first

school experience be a happy one.
