Registration/Admission Procedure

For new families, we encourage you to have a tour of the school with our director. In order to secure an open spot in a class or to get on the waiting list – your application and a non-refundable, non-transferrable registration fee is required.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and dated the day they are received. Priority is given to children of First Presbyterian Church active  members and siblings of current and former students and Small Beginnings students.

On or before the first day of school the family must provide the following health records for their child: Florida Department of Health School Entry Health Exam form (DH3040) and Florida Certification of Immunization (DH680). We do not accept religious exemptions.

Final Determination of all classes will be made by the preschool staff in order to ensure a balance of boys and girls and provide the best environment for each child’s development. In July, each family will receive a packet regarding the upcoming school year and our Back-to-School Orientation for enrolled students which is held prior to the first day of school.
