Registration for Preschool Starts Online

Preschool Registration is a three-step process:

  1. Initial Registration Request - to start the registration process with a registration request, complete the online survey (see above).
  2. Placement Offer - after the initial registration request is submitted online, notification of a potential preschool placement, or not, will be emailed within 4-6 weeks from the time you submit the survey. Registration Email will contain the following: Placement, Link to Online Registration and Deadline For Submission.
  3. Online Registration Confirmation - Once you register and upload all required documents for your child through the online tool you will receive an email confirming the acceptance of your registration. In that email, you will receive a link to pay your 100.00 non-refundable Registration Fee (if applicable).

Initial Registration Tips

  • Due to limited space, PLEASE do not list a school for which you are not willing to accept a placement.
  • You are only required to choose 1 school and 1 session.
  • Placement offers will be emailed within 4-6 weeks.
  • Again, this request is the first step in the registration process.


*While we make every effort to offer placements based on the Home School, preschool placement offers are NOT necessarily based on the Home School and Registration Packets are taken in the order it is received.
