Enrollment Process

Once admitted into the program the enrollment process encompasses several steps leading up to the child’s first day of attendance.

  1. There is a onetime, non-refundable fee due upon enrollment which goes toward the cost of initial enrollment. This fee will not be required as a child re-enrolls from year to year. 
  2. Families will be provided with an enrollment packet.  Required forms included in the packet must be completed and submitted prior to the child’s first day of attendance.
    • Required documents:
      • Copy of up to date immunization records
      • Most recent physical within past year or with 30 days of start.
      • Emergency Authorization form
      • Release of Information
  3. Families must attend a Parent Orientation to meet administrators and to review program policies and procedures found in the Family Handbook and as required by State Child Care Licensing regulations.
  4. Classroom visits are a wonderful way for children to connect to their new surroundings. During a classroom visit children are able to view the new environment and families can meet the teachers and new friends. Parents must remain on site with their child during the initial visit. The Lead Teacher will be in touch with families in regards to the details of a classroom visit before the child’s first full day. Some classrooms prefer to do this in small groups, other arrange individual visits.  

Continued Enrollment from year to year

By late March/early April, current families will be expected to sign a contract for the next program year. The original deposit will be rolled over from the previous year. By the start of each program year families will need to update immunization, medical and authorization records.
