As a school committed to diversity, Arch Street Preschool welcomes students and families of every race, religion, socioeconomic status, ethnic background, and sexual orientation and encourages applications from families from a range of backgrounds. We believe that in order to break down the societal barriers that exist between human beings, we each need to engage people who are different than we are.
Arch Street Preschool will enroll families who desire their children to learn and grow alongside children who may look different, have different abilities, and well as different access to resources. We believe that authentic diversity is the best tool for meaningful learning.

Notification of Acceptance
Acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis ordered by the date the completed application is received. If a family is not immediately accepted, they will be placed on the waiting list until a space is available.
Getting to Know You Visit
This is a time for both the child and family to visit the school prior to their start date; however, we are doing this virtually now. During this time the family shares valuable information to ensure continuity of care while the Director and Teachers share school policies, procedures, and routines.
Enrollment paperwork is completed prior to the child's first day. To reserve a space, the family pays one month's tuition.
We ask families who are able to afford full tuition to do so in order that we may offer a range of scholarships. Arch Street Preschool accepts Child Care Works government subsidy and offers financial scholarships.
A non-refundable tuition deposit is required to hold a space. The deposit is applied to the first month’s tuition.
Families pay tuition in advance of service. Tuition is due by the last day of the month for the following month.
