Parent Tours:
Tours are available from October 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017. During your visit, you will be able to tour the school, observe classrooms and teacher/child interactions, and meet with the assistant director or director. Tours are for parents/guardians only—we look forward to meeting admitted children at a special event in the spring or thereafter. It is not mandatory to apply before scheduling a tour.

Enrollment Notification:
Decision letters and contracts are sent out on March 10. A signed contract, accompanied by a deposit, ensures a child’s placement for the fall. When the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces, wait list notifications will be sent, and families will be called from the wait list as spots become available. Current and alumni families as well as children of staff are given admission priority.
