Preschool Admissions

We look forward to getting to know you. If you have not done so already, please fill out our admissions inquiry form. Our preschool admissions process has four required steps that begin in September of each year.

No Mandarin skills are required to apply to preschool.

Process and Timeline

1. Attend an Information Session.

This event will provide you with a complete introduction to the school campus and our practices and philosophy. Attending an information session is a required part of the admissions process. If you previously attended an information session, you do not need to attend another one. This session is for adults only. Sessions run from the end of September 2017 through January.

2. Submit Your Application Form Online.

The online application, including a $100 fee, must be submitted by January 11, 2018, at 10:00am (Pacific time). Please call or email the admissions office if you are experiencing hardships paying the fee. We suggest applying early to have your choice of dates for the student class visit, student interview, and parent interview. The online application is due January 11, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. PST.

3. Schedule and Take Part in a Play Date.

Once you have submitted an application, you will receive an email with instructions on how to sign up online for a play date. Play dates are held on campus and last about 45 minutes. We ask that only one parent please attend with each child as there are space constraints in the classroom. Play dates are held January through February. 

4. Sign up for a Parent Interview. 

The parent interview is a 30-minute meeting with the Director of Admissions, and it gives us a chance to meet with prospective parents individually. Once you have submitted an application, you will receive an email with instructions upon submitting the online application on how to sign up online for a parent interview. Interviews are conducted between October and February.
