2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR SESSION NOW ENROLLING!

Hidden Valley Preschool welcomes students aged 33 months – 5 years (on the first day of school). Preschool students must be toilet-trained. Students are admitted to HVP on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Priority enrollment consideration is given to re-enrolling students and siblings who meet all admissions qualifications. We do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, religion, sex, disability, or national origin.

Step 1
Contact our director, Katie Rosenthal, to discuss our current availability. If we have an enrollment opening that works for your schedule, we will schedule a tour. If we do not currently have availability on the days you are looking for, you can be placed on our wait list.  

Step 2
Visit us and take a tour of the school. We ask that you bring your child with on the tour.  This tour will also serve as an informal interview to assure that our program is a good fit for your child and family. 

Step 3
Mail in or drop off a completed application form with application fee. The fee is required to hold your spot. Once the school year begins, it is applied to our snack budget. It amounts to about $1.50 per day for your child to provide healthy snacks throughout the year.

Step 4
You will be contacted via e-mail regarding your child’s acceptance into our program.
