How to Apply

Our classes fill up quickly, so be sure to apply early as soon as registration is open. We do give priority registration to our current families already enrolled. General registration opens shortly thereafter for any remaining spots. In addition, you’re invited to reserve a spot on a class’s wait list.  Below are some frequently asked questions.

1. What are your hours?

Our classes begin at 9 am and go until Noon.  Dropoff of children begins at 8:45 am.

2. What is the student-teacher ratio?

Class size ranges from 10-16 children, with a teacher and assistant teacher.

3. Are parents allowed to come into the classrooms?

We love having visitors join us for birthday and special events like Mother’s Day Tea, Donuts for Dad, and our Christmas program.  However, ongoing parental involvement during classtime is not encouraged.

4. Do children have to be potty trained?

Children need to be potty trained before beginning the 3, 4, and 5-year-old classes.

5. Do you operate on a particular school calendar?

We loosely follow Wake County Public School’s calendar and take off for a Pastor’s Conference in the fall.
