Lottery

Registration for the Public – the Lottery

After registration to priority families, available spots in the preschool are open to the public by lottery. The lottery is held on the first Saturday in February at 9:00 am. The drawing of names begins at approximately 9:15 am and you must be present when your name is called.

If there is an available spot, you will need to complete the registration process the morning of the lottery. You will need to have with you a copy of your child’s birth certificate and a check for the non-refundable registration fee. The registration fee for the 2018-2019 school year is $125.

Once class rosters are filled, a wait list will be created for each class category. Families are placed on the wait-list in the order they were called for the lottery. If your child is eligible for more than one class, you may request to be placed on each wait list that they are eligible for. There is no fee to place your child on the wait list. and no forms to complete.
