Redeemer Lutheran Preschool has a simple and equitable enrollment process. Our application package, usually released in December, contains the application, open house information and deadlines. For the initial lottery, new applications are due no later than January 22, 2020. After the January lottery date, it is rolling admission as students are placed in an available class or on the wait list in the order received.
Please see the Frequently Asked Questions for answers to common enrollment inquiries.
We are a Christian preschool, but our enrollment is open to families of all faiths. Redeemer Lutheran Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, color or national or ethnic origin in the admission of students or the administration of educational policies.
Please note that current families at Redeemer Lutheran Preschool will have priority for the next year’s enrollment.
