About The Application Process
Admission is conducted on a first come, first served basis, with priority given first to Temple members and then to families of children enrolled at the time of application. The Early Learnning Center serves children ages 12 months through age 6 regardless of ethnic, racial or religious background. All families must reapply each year, but currently enrolled families are given priority registration to reserve their space for the next year. Families on the 2018/19 waitlist must apply for the 2019/2020 school year to be considered for a space in the next school year.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until a program is full. At that time, new applicants will be added to a waitlist in order of application. We will fill spaces from the waitlist as space becomes available. All families must reapply each year. A waitlist only exists for the school year for which the application was made.
what to expect
Once an application has been submitted with a $50 application fee, you can expect to hear from the Director of Admissions within approximately 3 weeks either inviting you to complete registration or notifying you that you have been added to a waitlist. Upon receiving an invitation to complete registration, you will have the opportunity to reserve your space by making a NONREFUNDABLE AND NONTRANSFERABLE registration deposit consisting of a $75 registration fee + one month's tuition. This deposit will be applied to your May tuition.
Some Availability for 2018-2019 School Year
We still have some availability in our three-year-old program for the 2018/19 school year. We also have some availability in our morning PreK program. Please inquire if interested. For all other classes, we are running a waitlist. We do call on our waitlist throughout the school year, so if you are interested in joining the waitlist, you can apply here.
