Enrollment Timeline for New Families

If your child will be 2.9 by September 1 (or, for a summer start date, July 1) you must begin the enrollment process by filling out our on-line inquiry form. This form can be submitted at any time however, please do not submit an inquiry form unless your child will be age eligible for the next enrollment cycle. Submission for children who do not meet the age eligibility requirements by the next enrollment cycle (in the upcoming July or September) will be returned. Your submitted inquiry form automatically puts your child in the enrollment "queue" for the upcoming school year. The minimum enrollment is three full days and priority will be given to those families enrolling for five full days, then families enrolling for four days, then families enrolling for three days. For four and three day families, we will do our best to meet the days you request but cannot guarantee it. Days offered are dependent on availability

Nov- Dec

Re-enrollment of current and alumni families in that order of priority. The applications received from currently enrolled and alumni families determine the spaces available for new families.

Jan- March

If your child will be 2.9 years or older* by September 1st (or by July 1 for families seeking a summer start date) you will be contacted in the order in which your inquiry form was received. If a spot is available, you will be invited to visit the school, share information about your child and discuss your expectations for preschool. If you would like to proceed, you will be given next steps to finalize your child's enrollment.

If no spot is available, you will be placed on our Wait List (see below).

*Children who are eligible for Kindergarten are encouraged to find Transitional Kindergarten programs to meet their needs

The Wait List

The school maintains a wait list for the upcoming school enrollment cycle. Sometimes a space becomes available due to family circumstances (a job change or relocation) or a decision to enroll in another school. When this happens, we will notify the next person on the list. Families are given a few days to make their decision. The applications on the wait list are not automatically rolled over for the following school year. Families on the waitlist will be notified of our next enrollment period by email and it will be posted on www.sharoncoopchool.org. A new application must be submitted for each school year and for the Summer Program.
