Enrollment

Admission to The Children's House

The Enrollment Process

Enrollment is a simple 3 step process:

  1. Schedule a parent visit to observe our classroom in action and see if our environment is a good fit for your child.
  2. We meet to discuss our philosophy and answer any question you may have about our program.
  3. Your child visits us (the amount if time depends on how old your child is) to see how he or she responds to our environment.
