Prospective families who are interested in enrolling their child/ren in our program are encouraged to make initial contact by email or phone. For all enrollment inquiries or to add your child to our current waitlist, please email Jess at Jess@StMarksNurserySchool.com, or call the school office directly at 858-273-1489. Tours of the campus and classrooms are conducted once placement for enrollment has been offered. All new students are enrolled from our waitlist, parents are encouraged to check on their status every so often, but we will reach out if/when placement for your child’s age becomes available.
Classes are filled from our waitlist.
A wait form can be obtained via email or by visiting the school office. The waitlist is maintained and kept in order of date filed, and prospective families are contacted when a spot for placement becomes available. Priority is given to siblings of currently enrolled children in our program before children from the wait list are placed. Once a child from the wait list is offered a placement, their spot is secured by providing a non-refundable annual registration fee and a deposit (refundable with a 30-day notice to withdraw) equal to one month’s tuition. Please note that this deposit is not your first month’s tuition and will stay on file in your child’s account, from which any outstanding charges will be deducted. Any remaining amount will be fully refunded when you are finished with our program or credited to your last month’s tuition payment.
If you wish, a wait form will be provided to you during your visit. Wait lists are kept in order of date filed, and prospective parents are called when a space opens, which corresponds to their wishes for program, age group, and days of the week desired. Preference is given to siblings of children currently enrolled in our program. Once called from our waitlist, placement is secured by providing a non-refundable annual registration fee and a deposit (refundable with a one-month notice) to hold the space for your child. This deposit is not your child’s first-month tuition. It is a deposit that stays on file in your child’s account, from which outstanding charges will be deducted, and the remainder will be fully refunded when you are finished with our program.
Once a spot for placement is offered, there are state-required forms that must be completed before your child can be left in our care. An enrollment packet (to include all state-required forms) will be given at the time of registration and collection of applicable fees.
Each member of our staff is trained and ready to work with your child and provide reassurance until your return. We want “school” to be a very positive experience for each child. The bond we build with your child from the first day in our center is aimed at providing security and trust that will carry through each school day.
