Get Started in Just 5 Steps.


1. Take Us for a Test Drive

Schedule a personal facility tour (online or in-person) or attend an open house to connect with an experienced teacher, ask questions, pick up an enrollment packet and get a firsthand feel of our school and staff.

When families visit a prospective caregiver in person, they have the best opportunity to evaluate whether the program is a good match for parents’ expectations of cleanliness, quality care, shared values, and more!

2.  Register Your Child

Submit an Admission Application in person, by fax, or email and pay securely online for the one-time application/registration fee.

3.  Secure an Enrollment Date

Confirm the admission date presented on the registration confirmation email or join our interest list to be among the first to learn about future openings as they arise.

4.  Submit Registration Materials

Provide our office with a complete enrollment packet, including payment of registration/materials fees and first month’s tuition, vaccination record, Physician’s Report, and additional records.

5.  Get to Know Our School

Visit the new classroom with your child 2-3 times immediately prior to the enrollment date (not required for Remote Learning Program).  Meet teachers, ease separation anxiety, and become familiar with the classroom and routines.
