BECOMING A PRESCHOOL STUDENT IN 5 STEPS
Visit one of Pinecrest’s Open Houses and/or reach out to connect with our dynamic community.
In addition to the application, Pinecrest requires an Online Teacher Recommendation Form if a preschool applicant has been to daycare or preschool before. The form is to be filled out by a daycare provider, a teacher or a preschool director. The teacher recommendation form is submitted online.
Once the child’s application and teacher recommendation form (if applicable) have been received, the Engagement Coordinator will contact the parents/guardians to schedule a prospective student visit (to be determined whether in-person or virtual).
Parents/guardians will receive notification by email from the admissions team indicating the school’s admission decision. Acceptance emails will be accompanied by a link to our online student registration contract. In addition to submitting the registration contract, parents/guardians must remit the following:
$250 non-refundable, non-transferable annual registration fee
$722 first tuition installment for preschool
$350 one-time new family enrollment fee
The registration contract and fee, the first tuition installment and the one-time new family enrollment fee must be submitted within the deadline date outlined within the acceptance email. After this period, Pinecrest School can no longer guarantee a child’s space in a class. The registration contract link is provided in the acceptance email and the registration fee and the one-time new family enrollment fee are paid online with the submission of that contract. The first tuition installment is paid by check, payable to Pinecrest School. Once all above-listed items are received, the child has secured a place in the class.
