The time has come to register for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year for our Half-Day Preschool program! These classes are for potty trained 2.5-5 year-old children. To see which classes are available and the rates, click HERE.
The enrollment process will be scheduled as follows:
January 14-18, 2019–9:00am-4:00pm: Priority students submit a request for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice class. At the time of the application, families will draw a placement (Lottery) number. All applications will be processed in numerical order. Numbers will be available in two distinct groups-Priority 1 (current students) and Priority 2 (siblings of current students, alumni families, and church members). No payments will be required at the time of the Lottery number draw. Arriving early or “first in line” is not necessary since it is a random number draw.
Special Priority Group 1 (pink colored) forms will be available at the reception desks.
January 21st – Class assignments for Priority Groups 1 and 2 are completed.
January 25th – Priority Groups 1 and 2 placement letters and financial agreements are mailed home.
February 1st – Due date to return signed financial agreements and re-enrollment fees.
February 11th – Open Enrollment opens for all outside families.
**All current students are guaranteed a space at Open Arms for the 2019 – 2020 school year; however, specific class/teacher placement is NOT guaranteed. Every effort will be made to accommodate your family’s specific needs and requests.
**Please keep in mind that teacher assignments are not finalized until the beginning of the school year! The Lottery guarantees your child a place in the age-appropriate program, not in a specific classroom or with a specific teacher(s).
If you have any questions about these procedures or about your specific child/family situation, please feel free to contact our Enrollment Coordinator, Hena Hasan: firstname.lastname@example.org
