To begin the registration process, you must create an account in Eleyo if you have not done so already. Once you have created an account, or logged into your existing Eleyo account, you will be able to select a preschool program from the choices below. Follow the prompts to select the location and course section. You must complete all sections of the registration contract request and enter your method of payment. Your account will not be charged until your contract request is approved. Please have the following information ready while completing the registration request:
- Name of your child's home school
- Your first and second choice of class (classes can be found in our Early Childhood brochure)
- Method of payment (Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express)
All applications are processed in the order in which they are received. Space is available at each school on a first come, first serve basis. Registrations will be accepted until classes are full. If your requested class is full, you will be placed in your second choice and remain on a waitlist for your first choice. Your contract status for that class will show as pending, indicating your child is on the waitlist. Once you have completed the registration process, all contracts must be approved by our office. Placement is not guaranteed until you receive the email confirmation.
The non-refundable registration fee and last month's tuition are due when your contract is approved.
