Please read below for more on the admissions process and how to get started.

Admission Process

1. School Tour  

All families are invited to tour the school and talk informally with the admissions staff. Our Director will give you a tour of our facility and get to know your individual interests and expectations. Please call our admissions office for scheduling: 718-414-0881. 

2. Registration

Parents are to complete and submit a student application form for each child. A registration fee of $200 must accompany this application. This enables the process to be started. Please note that no application is considered until all parts of the application are received.

3. Review 

This phase occurs after all parts of the application have been received and the student and family visits are completed. The completed application is then discussed with the Admissions Committee.

4. Final Acceptance 

The last phase of the application process is notification and, if the student is accepted, the issuance of an Enrollment Contract. Once you are informed that your child has been accepted into our school, a $1,500 non-refundable deposit and the Enrollment Contact* must be submitted within 10 days of receiving the acceptance notice. This deposit will be deducted from the annual tuition due.

*The signed contract and deposit secure the applicant’s place at the Preschool. The deposit is credited toward the second tuition installment. 

Before your child enters school, we will need a signed Student Medical Form that must include certification of up to date vaccinations and all other important health information.
