Enrollment Process
To apply, complete the application form and submit with a $40 non-refundable application fee.  Applications are considered for the year of enrollment only, and do not carry forward into the following enrollment year.

All applications received on or before December 22, 2018 will be considered equally.   Admission decisions are generally made by February 1st and parents are given until March to accept or reject a placement.  Children not initially accepted are placed on a waiting list and their families are notified, as places become available.

Placement decisions are based on a number of factors, including age of the child, family childcare needs, prior school experience, availability of space, and parent and teacher recommendations.  The number of spaces available for enrollment is determined by the licensed capacity in each classroom.

Priority consideration is given in the following circumstances, although placement cannot be guaranteed:
Continuing children
Children of staff
Siblings of continuing students and former students
Residents of Cabin John
Children of Montgomery County Government employees
