** Demand for space in the pre-primary programs (Early Childhood through Pre-Kindergarten/Montessori) is often greater than the capacity we can accommodate for new applicants. Families applying for children to these programs will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting in March until programs have reached capacity. Pre-primary applicants will be reviewed according to application date within each timeline category, affiliation to the school, and birth date. Children cannot attend the Early Childhood program prior to turning 18 months of age.
