I am pleased that you are considering Chai Tots Preschool to meet the early childhood education needs for your child. Choosing a school that supports Jewish values and teachings is one of the most significant decisions your family will ever make. I am confident that you will be pleased with the quality and dedication of our staff, the curriculum, and our outstanding facilities.
Please read on below for more on the admissions process.
1. Application Forms
Parents are to complete and submit a "Student Application Form" for each child. A non-refundable registration fee must accompany this application.
Before your child enters school, we will need a signed Certificate of Immunization Status and the Family/Medical Information sheet.
2. School Visit
All families are invited to tour the school and talk informally with the admissions staff. Our Director will give you a tour of our facility and get to know your individual interests and expectations.
Preschool applicants will participate in a play date with other preschool children. Screenings last approximately 20 minutes. Testing is mandatory for all students entering nursery.
This phase occurs after all parts of the application have been received and the student and family visits are completed. Families are kept up to date on the status of each application, especially if teacher recommendations or school records have not been received. For each applicant, the Director meets with the faculty members who observed the student. The completed application is then discussed with the Admissions Committee.
The last phase of the application process is notification and, if the student is accepted, issuance of an Enrollment Contract. The Enrollment Contract must be signed and returned within ten days with a non-refundable tuition deposit. The signed contract and deposit secure the applicant’s place at the Preschool. The deposit is credited against the second tuition installment. Please note that no application is considered until all parts of the application are received.
