Enrollment process

The first step in enrollment process is to fill out an application.  If there is no space available, this step puts you on a waiting list.  There is a non-refundable fee of $50 for the application. When a space is available you will be contacted. Upon accepting a space, a deposit is due to guarantee/hold this spot ($400 for infants-preschool, $200 for SA), and additional paperwork will be given prior to the first day. Infants through preschool children must provide proof of immunizations on or before the first day of enrollment. Then you have 30 days to provide a medical statement signed by your doctor. Children are required to have all recommended immunizations or in process, unless there is a medical reason.
