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 only conducted once placement for enrollment has become available.
Our Waitlist Process:
All new students are enrolled from our waitlist, so getting on the waitlist is the very first important step towards enrollment. 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. 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 waitlist are placed. Our enrollment period is in the spring, where we will begin placing students from the waitlist for the fall school year.
Registration & Enrollment Process:
Once a child from the waitlist is offered a placement, their spot is secured by providing a non-refundable annual registration fee, facilities fee, and a deposit (refundable with a 30-day notice to withdraw) equal to one month’s tuition at the 8:30-12:30 rate. 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.
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.
