New Child Enrollment Process

Families are selected for enrollment from the waitlist in priority order, as follows: 

  1. Siblings of currently enrolled SF State faculty and staff children, in order of wait list registration date.
  2. Siblings of currently enrolled community children, in order of wait list registration date.
  3. SF State faculty and staff, in order of wait list registration date. 
  4. Community families, including SF State students, in order of wait list registration date.

While most new enrollment occurs at the beginning of the program year, new families may enroll during the year as vacancies occur.    Once selected for enrollment, new families are offered an Admission Agreement that outlines their program schedule (number of months and days of the week) and monthly tuition amounts.  Families have one week to return the signed Agreement and pay the annual nonrefundable Registration Fee in order for the enrollment slot to be reserved for their child(ren) (see current Tuition/Fee Schedule).  The annual registration fee for newly enrolling families must be paid electronically using a bank account or credit card; please note  that credit card payments will be assessed a 2.75% service charge - Annual Registration Fee Payment.

Newly enrolling families are also required to complete a variety of enrollment forms that include health history and immunization records, a physician’s report, emergency contact information, persons authorized to pick-up the child, permission forms, information on your child, and release of liability.  All enrollment forms must be submitted prior to the child’s first day of attendance except for the physician’s report which can be submitted within 30 days of entry into the program.   Enrollment forms may be downloaded here.

Re-Enrollment of Currently Enrolled Children

All families must re-enroll their child each school year by completing an Enrollment Request Form and new Admission Agreement. Enrollment Request Forms are distributed in late winter to give currently enrolled families priority enrollment for the upcoming program year.  Admission Agreements for the new program year are usually distributed in late February.  Returning families must pay the nonrefundable annual registration fee with their next month's tuition (see current Tuition/Fee Schedule).  Returning families are asked to complete several enrollment forms to ensure the center has updated information on the child.  These enrollment forms may be downloaded here.

The program attempts to accommodate returning children’s schedule requests.  SF State faculty and staff receive priority in changing schedules for the new program year.
