I prefer that you download and print a hard copy of the enrollment form It is actually more user friendly than the online enrollment process. You can download the hardcopy form here. There is only one three page form.
But, if you don’t have access to a printer, you can enroll on line.
To enroll online there are two parts to the student enrollment process.
Part 1: The basic enrollment info with name, phone, etc.
Part 2: an emergency medical care and photo consent form. Just click the links to get started. Please don’t forget to do part 2. (And I don’t know why, but often people report that they completed part 2, but I didn’t get it. So, make sure you hit the SUBMIT button.)

Why Preschool is Important Today:
Studies show that young minds are able to develop new habits with relative ease, but, if they are not given a rich environment with opportunities to explore, create and experiment during the critical early years before age 6, they may never reach their full developmental potential. [This is huge! – it means if he doesn’t get what he needs for his brain to develop before he’s 6, he may never catch up. See this link for the complete study: THE HECKMAN STUDY According to the study, “Families play a powerful role in shaping adult outcomes.” Therefore, children who have a wide variety of learning experiences through both free play and directed play optimize their cognitive development for higher education and successful adult outcomes.
Don’t be put off by enrolling. Enrolling does not obligate you to coming any additional days or times you want to, whether you want full time care or just drop off once in a while, it’s all the same form. Enrollment is just a label for the form that collects information to keep your child safe while in our care. You only have to do it once.
