How to register your child

During the current school year, registration is an open process if there are spots available.

Closed Registration: Parents of students currently enrolled and in good financial standing will be asked to attend closed registration for the following school year. If you are unable to attend, you will be placed on a first come first served basis the day following closed registration. Parents or a representative are encouraged to attend closed registration. Morning or afternoon spots are not guaranteed.

Open Registration: Siblings of current students and CPCBA families will be enrolled on a first come first served basis the day following Closed Registration. Students new to the program will be placed on a first come first served basis the day following siblings and CPCBA families. Open Registration students are placed in the order we receive their complete registration packet, and must include a check for the registration fee ($40 per student/$60 per family). Open Registration forms(new families only) will be accepted beginning December 1, to get on the waiting list for the following year. Checks will not be deposited unless your child is offered a placement.

Special Note:  A child must be the class’s required age by September 1 in order to enroll in the desired Wooden Ladder class.  For example, a child must be 3 by September 1 to enroll in Wooden Ladder 3.
