I. TOUR OF THE PRESCHOOL
Tours are available weekdays, by appointment. Tour reservations are made by contacting the Preschool Office (694-9370) at least a day in advance. Touring parents will have the opportunity to meet the Preschool Director and visit classes for all age groups--twos, threes, fours and half-day JK.
Parents complete the application and return it to the Preschool Office with a non-refundable application fee of $50.00.
III. CLASSROOM VISIT
In some cases it may be beneficial to schedule a classroom visit for the child, in order to assess the ability to adapt socially to the Preschool environment. These are generally morning visits, and are scheduled by the Preschool Director.
IV. SPECIAL NEEDS
Parents of a child who requires special services should provide evaluation materials and a copy of the child's IEP (Individual Education Plan) at the time of application. St. Francis School makes every effort to accommodate children, striving always to create a healthy, diverse classroom balance.
V. ADMISSION AND PLACEMENT
St. Francis Preschool accepts applications beginning in August for the next year. Each application is placed, in the order it is received, into a holding file. The Admissions Committee first offers contracts to current preschool families in December. Afterwards, the Admissions Committee will review each new applicant's file and notify parents expediently regarding acceptance and placement. At times, due to space restrictions, St. Francis is unable to meet a family's preference for class placement. Families who are not offered their preferred class, but accept a second or third choice, will automatically be placed on a waiting list for the first-choice class.
