Decisions for preschool enrollment are made by the first week of May. You will be contacted by email as to your child's status. A deposit of one month's tuition will be required to confirm your child's enrollment once you have been notified of their acceptance. This deposit will be applied to the June tuition.

Parents enrolling their child in the Chester Preschool Program are responsible for transportation to and from school.
