Steps for Enrollment
Enrollment for the summer session and the proceeding school year begins in March. Be sure to enroll early, as space is limited. Please follow the following steps to ensure a smooth and speedy admission for your child to Sunflower Preschool:
1) Please submit an Application Request Form either at the time of you visit or shortly thereafter. The Application Request Form may be printed prior to you visit and brought with you to complete after your tour. Please be sure to indicate on this form the times/days you are considering for your child (Mon-Fri and 9-3 available). It would also be helpful to know the language your child speaks at home and the ethnic heritage of your child. We value diversity and seek to create a comfortable atmosphere for all our wonderful children. If you are interested in applying following your visit, please return your Application Request Form with the $200 Application Deposit made out to Sunflower Preschool. We will refund $100 of the fee back to you if your child does not gain admittance.
2) Once we have received your Application Request Form and deposit and have approved your child's admittance, we will contact you to schedule your child's first day at school. Please bring the completed Parent Contract and State Forms with you to your child's first day along with your first month's tuition and pictures for birthdays.
3) In the event that your child doesn’t gain admittance immediately, you will have a choice to be included on our waiting list. If you choose not to participate in the waiting list, $100 of the application and registration fee will be refunded back to you. Our waiting list is created based on the order in which completed application forms are received. If space becomes available in our school, we will contact the families on our waiting list in order.
Schedule Your Visit
We welcome all family and prospective visitors. It is a privilege to help all families recognize a new and an old way of supporting children as they grow. You will meet with teachers who are excited about your child's development and enjoy sharing their education and skills.
The rhythm of our day begins with free play or snack followed by a flute that welcomes the children into the garden where we spend some time planting, watering, feeding animals (chickens, turtles, bunnies) and harvesting. Please call us at (949) 240-6589 or use the Contact Form (please include your name, contact information, [address and phone number], and the name and birth date of your child) to make an appointment for your visit. Visiting times are between 9-10am daily. We look forward to meeting you!
