Welcome Procedure for New Families
Information Gathering- Please explore our website to learn more about our unique approach to education and to determine if Green Gate may be a good fit for your child. Next, submit an interest form through our website or give us a call to set up a tour of our school.
Family Visit- The next step is to schedule a Family Visit! Before your visit, we will email you a copy of our Parent Handbook. Please familiarize yourself with our policies and procedures before your visit as it will answer many of your initial questions. During this visit you will be introduced to our program philosophy and curriculum, meet our teachers, and tour our wonderful learning spaces! We will also leave time to go over any additional questions you may have. At the conclusion of your visit, you may reserve your child's spot by submitting a non-refundable enrollment fee of $150.
Enrollment Packet- Next, complete the required enrollment forms in the enrollment packet and return them before your child’s first day of school.
First Day- We will provide you with information to help your child’s first day go smoothly and ensure your child has everything they need for a safe and happy beginning at Green Gate!
How old does my child need to be to enroll?
Children need to be 2 years 6 months to enroll in our preschool program and 5 years old by August 31 to enroll in our Kindergarten program.
How do I reserve my child's spot?
After your Family Visit, you may submit a $150 non-refundable enrollment fee (per child) to secure your child's spot in your preferred class.
