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:

  • Children of current members and staff
  • Children of prior members–alumni and staff
  • Children of members of the Rock Spring Congregational United Church of Christ
  • All others who submit applications for membership


2022-2023 Enrollment
There are still spots available for a limited number of classes for the 2022-23 school year. If you would like to apply for the current school year, please contact our Membership Chairs: memberchair@rockspringpreschool.org

2023-2024 Enrollment
Applications will be accepted for the 2023-2024 school year starting in November 2022. Applicants who have submitted applications and paid the Application Fee will be entered into a lottery in mid-February 2023 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, please submit an application between November 2022, and February 24th, 2023.  Any applications received after this date will be added to our waitlist on a first-come-first-served basis unless spots remain in the class.
