Fees & Registration:

The completed application form and NON REFUNDABLE enrollment fee of $50.00 ($10.00 for each additional  sibling) will hold a place for your child. The tuition is collected on a monthly basis, due the first of each month beginning with the June 1st payment, then September 1, 2017 through April 1, 2018.  

Once you have scheduled a tour and have come to visit, we hold the space you inquired about for up to a week after your tour date. Please mail in your forms and registration fee. If dropping off, please do so Monday-Friday between the hours of 10 am - 2 pm.

Activity Fee:

A one-time activity fee of $35.00 is collected per year for each child enrolled. This fee is used to provide your child with a school bag, one parent/child trip, and various enrichment activities through the year.   

Health Form:

Every student must have a yearly check up with a signed medical form prior to the start of school in September. To ensure the health and safety of everyone at Gloria Dei Preschool, children without a current medical form and that have not been FULLY immunized, will not be permitted to attend classes.  

Waiting Lists: 

If a class that you are interested in has already reached its capacity, a waiting list will be established. Once we have your child's name on the list, and space opens in that particular class, we will contact you and schedule a tour. Our waiting list is for the current school year only. 

We hope the information provided can be used as an informational tool prior to your visit with us. Please visit the "for parents" page where our Parent Handbook is available for you to read before you visit. We look forward to meeting you and having you join our preschool family!
