There is a one-time, nonrefundable $75 application fee per child, Once the application fee is paid, we will process your application. The application fee is paid electronically using a bank account or credit card; please note that credit card payments will be assessed a 2.75% service charge.

Enrollment offers are sent out in March for the next school year. While most new enrollment occurs at the beginning of the program year in August, new families may enroll during the year as vacancies occur.

Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all of the families interested in enrollment. If you applied for our program, but you do not receive an enrollment offer in March for the following school year, your application will roll over for as long as you wish. You do not need to re-apply or pay the application fee again. We have rolling enrollment all year long if openings occur. We will periodically check in with you to assess your needs and whether or not you would like to keep your application in our waiting pool.
