Wait Pool Information

When your application is received, along the fee of $35 per child, you will be placed in a wait ‘pool’. The fee is waived for the second child in one family applying at the same time and for the exact same schedule; a separate application is needed when children’s schedules differ. There is no fee for those with vouchers.

Parents and guardians are required to tour the school before January 31. Exceptions can be made with permission of the director for applicants from out-of-town. Applicants who have not toured will not be in the wait pool, but will be offered spaces only after everyone in the pool has been contacted.

When a spot opens up, you will be notified along with other families, with preference given to siblings of current students, legacy families, and the best needs of the classroom community and otherwise on a first come, first served basis. The date of your paid application and the schedule you are applying for are factors considered for each round of offers.

The spot will then be secured by a non-refundable deposit of $500 per child, due within 5 days. Failure to send the deposit on time nullifies the offer and the application returns to the wait pool. This $500 is refunded at the end of your child’s enrollment, assuming that all aspects of the contract have been met.

Families who don’t secure a spot will stay in the pool until all spots are filled.            Children who are not enrolled will stay in the wait pool for the following years until they go to kindergarten. No additional applications are required.
