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

2023-2024 Enrollment

Applications will be accepted for the 2023-2024 school year starting in October 2022. Applicants who have submitted applications and paid applicable fees 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 October 2022, and February 16th, 2023.  Any applications received after this date will be added to our waitlist unless spots remain in the class.

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 please submit an application:
