The best way to get a feel for our school is to experience it. We encourage parents of prospective students to arrange a tour of the school and classrooms. Because of the COVID protocols in place, tours are scheduled after dismissal of classes between 12:00 -- 2:00 Monday - Thursday.

Once your application is received, your child will receive priority by date of application for the next year’s appropriate classroom. It is the policy of St. Paul’s Preschool to give first preference for enrollment to current students, siblings of children currently enrolled in the program, and to parishioners of St. Paul’s Church. Within each age group, date of application is key.
Should the class be filled, your child will be put on a wait-list and may be enrolled if any spaces become available. Your child’s application will only kept on file until October of the next school year.
Enrollment contracts for new applicants will be mailed in early March and must be returned by April along with a 1/10 non-refundable deposit.
