Enrollment Process

Please note that if you miss your group deadline, you are put into the group for which you submit your application. You may have to go through the lottery process or be placed on the wait list if there are more applications than there are spots for the class(es) you requested.

1. The VP of Membership/Enrollment collects all in-house application forms and fees. After the deadline listed above, he/she creates a preliminary roster. In rare cases, a lottery may need to be held if too many people request a certain class. In the unlikely event that a current family cannot be placed in any class for a particular age, they are placed on the waitlist.

2. The VP of Membership/Enrollment collects all alumni and Church members application forms and fees. After the deadline listed above, he/she adds these children to the roster. If there are more requests than there are spaces available for a particular class, a lottery is held. Anyone who doesn’t receive a spot is placed on the waitlist.

3. The VP of Membership/Enrollment collects all application forms and fees from new families. After the deadline listed above, he/she finalizes the class lists. Again, if there are more requests than there are spaces available for a particular class, a lottery is held. Anyone who doesn’t receive a spot is placed on the waitlist.

4. If applications are received after the final deadline, they are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for any available spaces, or are added to the waitlist in the order they are received.

Application Fee

A $100 (for 2021-2022 school year) non-refundable application fee for each child is due at time of application. There is a $150 application fee cap per family, so if you are applying for two or more children, then you need to submit a $150 registration fee check.

Please address any questions to the VP of Membership/Enrollment enrollment@providencenurseryschool.org
