Our online application for the 2020-2021 school year will go live on November 15, 2019, with all applications due by January 1, 2020.

We are fully enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year, but we continue to accept applications for our wait list. You will find below the online application for the 2019-2020 school year AND instructions for submitting the application fee, along with the Buy Now button for online payments.



Applications will be accepted from November 15, 2019 to January 1, 2020 for September 2020 entry.

Once a completed application is received, a follow-up play visit will be scheduled for December or January. We ask that both parent(s) and child attend. It is a relaxed half-hour visit for your child to play in the classroom and for you to ask questions.

Notification begins in mid-February for our 2′s class, and rolling from mid-February to as late as June for our 3′s/4′s classes. We keep a year-round wait list of applicants.

Please note: Children must be at least 2.0 by September 1, 2020 to attend the Collective in 2020-21.
