Admission to Discover Preschool is open to any child between the ages of 2.9 years to 5 years, regardless of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation or disability. Enrollment into our programs is based upon the following criteria: 


2-Day Program: Children must be three years old by December 31.

3-Day Program: Children must be three years old by September 1.

4-Day Program: Children must be four years old by September 1. 


Returning students are given priority for admission to Discover Preschool.  Siblings of current and former students will receive priority over new families.  


Registration Process

Registration for returning famlies begins on the first school day in December.  

Application forms are given to all current students and mailed to potential known returning siblings.  It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school when they would like to receive applications for siblings.  

Applications from returning students and siblings are accepted via mail or drop off to the Preschool Office from the date the  materials are first available in December to the first Friday in January AFTER the Winter break.  

Class placement will be made the first Monday following the application deadline.  After all three day and four day returning students have been registered, students from the two day program will be registered. Then, siblings of returning and former students will be enrolled in the order their registration has been received.

If there are not enough slots to accommodate all the registrations, a lottery will be instituted.  If it is needed, the lottery will be performed immediately after the application deadline.   If your child does not receive placement in your class of choice, your deposit will be returned. 

Acceptance letters will be mailed once placements have been made.  In order to be guaranteed of placement, you must return the acceptance letter by the date specified or your slot will be pased onto another child. 

After current and returning children and siblings are placed, we will accept “new family” applications on a first come first served basis.  


Please note that the prior registration and enrollment DOES NOT guarantee registration in the program of your choice.

All application fees and pre-paid tuition payments including pre-paid Stay and Play are non-refundable.  

In the event that an unusual circumstance presents itself during the enrollment process, the Director reserves the right to make a determination in keeping with the purpose and philosophy of Discover Preschool.
