Primary Application Window:
Opens: Mid-February each year - Closes: last week of April. Decisions Communicated: Mid-May each year. Exact dates are published annually on the application.
This window is intended to service all re-enrolling families, as well as any new families that take advantage of our Early Enrollment window. We will accept applications up to the Close date. Unlike previous years, we will only be communicating decisions about Assistance after the Close date. All families will receive communication at the same time. This will allow us to equitably and fairly deploy our Aid budget to maximize family support. The majority of the available budget will be assigned during this window. The best opportunity to receive maximum Assistance is during this window.
For Preschool, this is the only window available for re-enrolling families. After this we will only accept applications for new families or based on significant change in financial circumstances.
Secondary Application Window:
Opens: mid-May – Closes: 31 July. Decisions Communicated: Weekly
There will be a second window that opens after the Primary Window. This is intended to serve new families that enroll over the Summer, or those who miss the primary window. Since this timing runs close to the start of school and we realize that ability to get Assistance may affect ability to enroll, we will be reviewing and giving decisions about Assistance weekly during this window. We will do our best to provide Assistance to those in need, but recognize we will be working with a smaller budget during this window.
For Preschool, this window, and beyond is open for new families or those who experience a significant change in their financial circumstances.
