Registration Steps

Here are the steps to enroll your child at the Child Development Center:

  • Place your child's name on the waiting list by completing and submitting an application. (Click the yellow button below.) You will receive an automated response acknowledging receipt of your application.
  • You must resubmit a new application each year, to remain on the waiting list until your child is enrolled. If you receive an admission offer and decline, your application is removed from the queue. 
  • After we notify you of an opening, we will provide you with an enrollment packet, which you must complete and return along with a $500 nonrefundable one-time registration fee.
  • You must then attend a mandatory orientation session before your child is admitted. Other requirements are described in the center enrollment packet.
