Enrollment Procedure

      To enroll a child at Allison's Infant & Toddler Center, parents/guardians must complete the appropriate program application and submit the necessary documents. The Assistant Director will review the class lists to determine when enrollment will be possible. In some cases, applicants may need to be placed on a waiting list until an opening is available for their child.

Waiting List

      Allison's Infant & Toddler Center will enroll the maximum number of children allowed in each classroom, in order to provide the children with a diverse social network. We will then start a waiting list for each classroom. Applications received for the waiting list will be date stamped and handled accordingly. An Assistant Director will monitor the waiting list and contact the next eligible person on the list as space becomes available.

Eligibility

Allison's Infant & Toddler Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion or gender in the recruitment, selection or enrollment process at our center.

Enrollment Eligibility

Allison's Infant & Toddler Center will enroll children 6 weeks – 6 years old.

Enrollment Procedure

      Upon acceptance into the program, an Assistant Director will contact the family of the child to be enrolled. This Assistant Director will then set up a meeting time, which fits into the child’s existing daily routine, for the family to come to the center to meet the teachers and fill out some additional paperwork. Upon arrival at the center, the child will be introduced to his new teachers, one at a time. The child will then be escorted to his new classroom by his parents and allowed to explore his new room at his own pace and level of comfort. Following the child’s exploration of the new classroom, the child will be provided with several toys and activities to stimulate him while his parents are filling out the necessary paperwork (periodically throughout his play, his new teachers will come in to again say hello and interact with him).
