If a child cannot be admitted immediately because of full enrollment, she/he will be placed on a waiting list or, if desired, transferred to another program. Enrollment will be processed in two business days. Teachers must have all paperwork before your child can begin attending. An Early Learning Program Coordinator will inform you of your child’s first day of school.
