Astra Day School is always looking for interested parents of children aged no older than 4 years to begin the enrollment process. We do not have calendar years or enrollment deadlines, and we do not pressure parents once they have made contact. Where your child goes to school for the first years of his or her life is one of the most important decisions you can make; we don’t think it should be made under pressure. We do not require children to have particular repertoires, nor do we have exclusionary criteria like a child toileting independently by a particular age. We accept children as they are, and we trust our abilities to teach to the individual we are trusted to teach.
Our enrollment procedure generally begins with an initial phone conversation with a senior staff member who can answer any of your initial questions. You can email contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next, we invite you to a 45-minute to one-hour tour with one of our senior staff to learn about why and how our learning environment is so unique.
Following this visit, if we are still a mutual match, you will be given enrollment paperwork and we will discus a start date.
If we all agree that your family and Astra Day School might be a mutual match, we will ask you to bring your child for a short parent and child interview where you and your child will separately meet with some of our teachers and other students.
Once we have all of the appropriate paperwork and your enrollment deposit, we are all set!
If the date of the commitment is longer than six months to the start date, we would like for there to be a pre-visit in order to orient your child to the environment close to the start date.
