Welcome to our Apply Page. Our application deadline for the 2017-18 school year was January 1, 2017, but we will review late applications for our wait list.

We currently have openings for 4-year-olds – please call to learn more.

Our annual Open House is Saturday, December 2, 10am – 1pm. Please drop by to see the Collective, meet our teachers, and chat with parents. No reservations necessary. Children are welcome.



Applications will be accepted from November 15, 2017 to January 1, 2018 for September 2018 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, 2018 to attend the Collective in 2018-19.
