Visit us and attend an open house!

Interested families should sign up to attend an open house to see our facility and gather initial information about our early childhood center.  An open house will consist of a group tour of our school and clinic with other prospective families (please no children on these tours).  Tours will be available at least one Thursday of each month from 9:00-10:00am . 

When you are ready to apply, complete the

interest application, then pay your $50 interest application fee to complete your application. A separate application form must be completed for each child.    

  • Submission of this form and fee does not guarantee admission to our program.   

  • You will be contacted if a potential spot becomes available.  

  • If offered enrollment, the $50 fee will be applied toward your registration fee.  

Interest Application Info

  • If contacted for a potential spot in our school, the child must attend a playdate in your child’s potential classroom.  During your child’s playdate, parents will meet with a member of our Admissions Team. Attending a playdate does not guarantee enrollment.  

  • If offered enrollment, complete enrollment paperwork.  If we are unable to offer enrollment at this time, your child will remain in the wait pool for a potential spot for the following school year, unless the family asks to be removed. 

  • Before your child begins, we will contact you to set up a meeting with your child’s teachers to ensure a smooth transition for your child into our school.

Admissions FAQs

  • When should I fill out the interest application? 

We recommend completing our interest application as soon as possible.  Many families fill out the interest application as soon as they find out about a pregnancy, a change of childcare plans, or a potential move to the area.   

 

  • What is a playdate?  

If contacted, your child will have the opportunity to attend a play date. Playdates allow High Hopes and the family the opportunity to determine if we are a good fit for your child and that High Hopes can support your child within the existing community of the classroom.  A playdate will be requested for all children.  

 

  • Do I get the $50 interest application fee back if a spot is not available for my child or if I choose to remove my child from the interest pool? 

No. The interest application fee allows us to manage the admissions process including open house tours, application management, and roster management.  If your child is admitted to our program, the $50 fee will be applied to your account.  

 

  • What happens if the admissions committee determines that they are unable to serve my child at this time?  

The goal of the High Hopes Admissions Team is to create classroom environments that provide the opportunity for growth and development for all children.  If the team determines that we cannot accommodate your child at this time, you may choose to keep your child in our interest pool or have them removed.   

 

  • How will I know when my child will be enrolled in the program?  

Due to the complexity of our admissions process, we are unable to answer questions regarding a child’s status in the enrollment process.  We will send out periodic requests for updated information as well as the option to remove your child from the interest pool.  You may also contact us at any time to remove your child from the interest pool.   

 

  • We have been in the interest pool for several months and have not received an update. Is our child still in the interest pool? 

Your child will remain in our interest pool unless you ask to have them removed or they age out of our program.
