After the observation we will arrange an appointment for you and your child to view the school and meet the Guides. Admission is offered based on information exchanged in this informal interview.

Step Four: Acceptance
Acceptance letters for preschool applicants are sent by email by the end of Term 2 (typically late February/early March). When enrollment is full, additional applicants are kept on file and are contacted if an opening becomes available (dependent upon age and gender requirements).
