Registration Process for 2018-19



Registration for Currently enrolled, Alumni & Legacy families will take place Tuesday, January 15th and Wednesday, January 16th.

Currently Enrolled: Children who are currently enrolled at A Child’s Way are guaranteed placement in our school the next year.  However, we cannot guarantee morning placementOnce currently enrolled children are placed, we will place any siblings of enrolled children and then alumni/legacy children.  We will place children in the same family together in the morning or the afternoon if at all possible.  If too many children are registered for a morning class, we will have an in-school lottery to determine class placement.  Waiting lists for morning placement will be determined from this lottery based on the number of years the registering child has attended ACW.

Class placement is not based on a first-come, first-served basis.  Rather we will wait until all applications are received on the designated date and time before making class placements.  Children are placed in classes in this order:  currently enrolled children, siblings of currently enrolled children, alumni & legacy children, then new children.


New Families:

An Open House will take place on January 19th from 10:00-noon for the 2019-20 school year.  At this Open House information will be available about A Child's Way, explaining the school’s philosophy and the curriculum we offer.  Parents will be able to meet with individual teachers representing the age group in which parents are interested, parents, and directors.  New parents will able be able to see what openings remain for the 2019-20 school year.  New families can register for these open spots beginning January 19th--a lottery for the remaining morning spots will happen at noon.  You can register anytime during the Open House for the remaining afternoon spots.    Parents who cannot attend this Open House can register for any remaining spots on a first-come-first-served basis beginning January 22nd at 11:00 a.m.
