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 February 3, 2021.  After the February lottery, students are placed in 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.

Due to COVID restrictions, we can arrange brief, after-hour tours by appointment only.  Schedule a tour at RLP here!

Applications must be submitted with the application fee per student. Fees and tuition are payable to Redeemer Lutheran Preschool and are non-refundable. We have one waiting list for each age group. Notification letters are mailed by February 1.

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

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

Once accepted into Redeemer Lutheran Preschool, four items finalize enrollment:

  • First and last month’s tuition (deposit)
  • Original birth certificate or passport
  • Virginia School Entrance Health Form (completed within 1 year prior) (See Documents Page)
  • RLP Emergency Contact Card and Student Information Sheet (See Documents Page)
