About Preschool 2023-24 Enrollment

ENROLLMENT FOR 2023-24 SCHOOL YEAR 

JOIN US FOR AN INFO SESSION AND TOUR: Jan. 20!

Our small, multi-age group lends itself to a close-knit learning community. Class size is 13 children, ages 2 (by Sept. 1, 2023) to 4 years old, with three teachers. Registration forms are processed on a first-come, first-served basis with consideration given to a balanced distribution of age, development, and personal needs. Enrollment opens to different groups in a certain order as follows:

  • On February 6th, BHA Members may register.
  • On February 9thcurrent students and siblings may register.
  • On February 13th, students on our waiting list may register.
  • We reach out to those who join our waiting list after February 16th if and when a spot is available.

We ask parents who are enrolling a child who is new to BHA Preschool to review and complete the Criteria for Participation checklist for their child upon registration. Once you enroll, we make a time to talk by phone and schedule a visit for you and your child. This visit is an opportunity for teachers and an incoming student to grow familiar with one another. 

Is your child ready for preschool? Here is our criteria for participation in the BHA Preschool.
