Admissions


RSCP admits preschool aged children from 18 months to five years of age, regardless of race, color, creed, or religion, or national or ethnic origin. Children must meet the stated minimum age requirements by September 30th. Parents are also asked to consider their child’s personality and developmental stage when considering the appropriate age to begin a preschool program.


Enrollment is extended based on the following priority:

  1. Children of current members and staff
  2. Children of prior members–alumni and staff
  3. Children of members of the Rock Spring Congregational United Church of Christ
  4. All others who submit applications for membership


2018-2019 Enrollment

Applications will be accepted for the upcoming school year only. Applicants who have submitted applications and paid applicable fees will be entered into a lottery in mid-February and if not offered a spot, notified of their waitlist position in early to mid-March. A number of other overriding factors, such as gender balance and age mix, may be considered as openings are filled and final class placement decisions are made by the staff. To be considered for the lottery, applications will be available starting on October 1st, 2017 and will be accepted until February 13th, 2018.  Any applications received after this date will be added to our wait list.


Apply for admission for the 2018-2019 school year.



2017-2018 Enrollment

If you are on our current waitlist for the 2017-2018 school year, you will be contacted if an appropriate spot opens mid-year.  This waitlist will be maintained until the end of this school year.  If you want to be included in the lottery for the 2018-2019 school year, you must submit another application (due by February 13th, 2018).  The lottery will be held in mid February 2018 and a NEW waitlist will be created at that time.
