Frequently Asked Questions about the Kindergarten

What is the age cutoff?
We want children to turn five by Nov 15 of the Fall they enroll. However, we look at each child individually. Age is only one factor we consider for enrollment.

What is the schedule?
We have school Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.

What is the kindergarten tuition?
Tuition is $525 per month.

How does enrollment work?
First, attend the Open House. If you wish to enroll a child, fill out an application. Once all applications have been received, we start contacting families to offer spots. We give priority to families already enrolled in our preschool. After that, we consider child’s age, past preschool experience, parent/guardian’s thoughts on educational steps for the next year, and desired ratio of ages and genders. When offering spots, we try to make the best decisions for both the kids and for our school.

Where do most kids go after Loving Space Kindergarten?
Every year is different. Typically, about 25% of graduates go on to public school kindergarten, 50% go on to public school first grade, and 25% go on to local private school first grade. Some children stay at Loving Space Kindergarten for a second year; we call these our K-2 kids.

How do kids transition to their next school environments?
We get very positive feedback from teachers. Many tell us they can recognize Loving Space kids because they engage well with peers, speak up for themselves, ask good quesions, and know how to learn.

When is the next open house?
The open house is usually in mid-February. Check back for updates as we get closer.
