Admissions Process & Timeline
Each September Stretch welcomes a number of new families into our program. Their children range from young twos just starting their school experience to our oldest 5 year olds, entering our TK program. We strive to admit like-minded families who join our program looking for the values and approach to early childhood education that we uphold. Stretch is a school of inquiry, curiosity, and love. We nurture children’s innate ability to wonder, explore, and investigate all the magic that defines this unique time in their lives. Our educators approach each day with thought and intention, facilitating discovery and learning alongside the child.
Step One: Visit Us
Step Two: Apply
This is a new partnership that started 11/1/18. If you submitted through our old system we do have your application and you do not need to apply again. From now on, all applications will be submitted through TADS.
You also must pay a $50 application fee and submit a family photo through TADS. Our application contains a number of questions that help us to get to know your child and family. All applications are due by February 1st of each admissions year to be considered in the first round. If you come to us after February 1st you are still welcome to apply and we will add your child’s application to our wait-pool. Should an opening come available we will contact you.
Step Three: Acceptance
Sending our daughter to Stretch was one of
the best decisions we've ever made as parents.
