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
Schedule a tour by calling or emailing our director.  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. We will discuss our current availability. 

Step 2
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 3
You will be contacted via e-mail regarding your child’s acceptance into our program.
