Application Process

Application to the Threes
The application process for the threes will be run in two parts.

Part 1
We will accept applications from all interested families up until October 15, 2019. There is no fee to submit an application. Our committee will then review all applications and determine approximately how many openings we will have for new families and how many children we will be able to meet. Please note there are no tours offered as a part of this initial step.

Part 2
We will contact you in mid to late November if we will be scheduling your child into an admissions playgroup and offering you a tour. Unfortunately, because of the large number of applications we receive and the small number of spaces we have open, we will not be able to offer playgroups and tours to everyone who has applied. We will also contact you at that time if we’re not able to continue with the process.

Application to the Fours
Due to the extremely small number of openings for the fours, we are not accepting any new applications. Only parents of preschool applicants who went through part 1 and part 2 of last year’s threes process may reactivate their children’s applications to be considered for entry to the fours in September 2020. Please contact us by October 15, 2019 to roll over your application for the fours.

Preschool decisions will be emailed on Thursday, February 27th.
