Here is how the Open Enrollment process works:
Priority placement for current families is honored through 10/31/2022 and runs in the following sequence:
1st – Current, active members of the First Congregational Church (our sponsor) – membership is defined and confirmed by the First Congregational Church
2nd – Current students whose accounts are in good standing
3rd – Siblings of current students whose accounts are in good standing
4th – Alumnae families of First Church Preschool (with a gap of no more than 5 years since last child attended)
5th – General public
Enrollment for general public is taken on a first-come, first-served basis. An application link will be added to our website the morning of Nov 1st at 10am. Once your application is received, you will be billed for the registration fee and deposit through our app (Brightwheel). You will not have a confirmed placement within our program until we receive the completed application along with the deposit payment. If it turns out that we have more applicants for a particular program than we have spaces available, then we will begin establishing a waitlist for that program. The waitlist will be developed and maintained on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to be on the waitlist for a program, you must submit a completed application. No deposit fee is necessary to be on a waitlist. If a spot becomes available in a particular program, we will begin to offer it out to those families on our waitlist in the order in which they received a placement on the waitlist. If a family on the waitlist declines a spot being offered to them or does not respond to an offer of a spot within 36 hours of the offer, then we will move on to offer the spot to the next family on the waitlist. If a family accepts a spot that is offered to them, we must receive a deposit fee in order to confirm the acceptance. If we do not receive the deposit fee within 3 days from the date of acceptance, we will no longer hold the place for that family and move on to offer the spot to the next interested family.
We hope you will consider becoming part of our caring community at First Church Preschool! Please let us know if you have any questions!
