Enrollment Application

Applications must be submitted with the appropriate application fee. Fees and tuition are payable to Redeemer Lutheran Preschool and are non-refundable. There is one waiting list for each age group. Notification letters are sent two weeks after the due date.

If there are multiple classes available in an age group, please indicate your preference. Your child’s placement will be based upon his or her age and developmental level. All classes are age-appropriate.

Age is determined by the child’s age on September 30. To be eligible for the 2½-year-old age group, a child must be at least 2 years old on March 31. All children 3 years or older must be able to use the toilet independently.

Once accepted into Redeemer Lutheran Preschool, four requirements must be satisfied to finalize enrollment:

  • First and last month’s tuition (deposit)
  • Original birth certificate or passport
