In late Fall, pre-enrollment forms for the following year are sent out to all families currently enrolled at the school and all families on our waiting list. Once pre-enrollment forms have been returned, children currently enrolled at the ELC are considered first; children of active members of St. Thomas Episcopal Church are considered second; children with siblings currently attending the ELC are considered third; children of former families of the ELC are considered fourth by date of inquiry. All other children are then considered by date of inquiry.
The number of applications St. Thomas Early Learning Center can accept is limited by class size. We recommend putting your child on our wait list as soon as possible due to classes filling quickly.
St. Thomas Early Learning Center considers all applicants equally and fairly and does not discriminate on the bases of race, sex, religion, or national origin. A child must be three years of age by September 1st to be enrolled in our Beginners class, four years of age by September 1st to be enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten, and 5 years of age by September 1st to be enrolled in Kindergarten.
Achieving a balance of gender, age, and special needs in each classroom is the job solely of the Head of School with input from teachers, staff, and the church rector.
Children should be 3 by September 1st of the academic year of application to be eligible for our program. If you are interested in placing your child on our wait-list for future years, please submit the form below and send to us. You will be contacted when we begin registration for the term.
