Application Process

Age Requirements:
TWOS must turn 2 by September 1st of the year enrolled.
THREES and FOURS must turn 3 or 4 by December 31st of the year enrolled

Priority on availible space in the nursery school is as follows:
Currently enrolled children
2. Siblings of previously and currently enrolled children. (A weighted ranking or lottery may be used if demand exceeds space)
3. Children of South Presbyterian Church members.
4. The general public.

Categories 1 – 3
Must notify the school of their intentions to enroll prior to November 1st of the year preceding the September entrance desired

The General Public may phone the school between the last week in September until October 31st to fill out an application for the lottery which will be drawn on the first school day in November for the following year’s enrollment. An OPEN HOUSE is held for prospective families in early fall. Please call the school office for more information.

It is not first come first serve
The last call has the same chance as the first call. A lottery is held if more applications are received than places available.

You will be notified BY MAIL within the week of the lottery of your status:
1 – yes
2 – waiting list (1/2 the size of the class)
3 – no

If you are in the YES category, we request that you visit a class in session – without your child – at a mutually convenient time. We do not interview children. After visiting, we ask that you give us your decision to enroll or if not within the next two days. We will request at that time a non-refundable deposit of $250.00.
