Admissions

King Street welcomes applicants ages two through five. Financial aid is available.

Admissions process for the 2017–2018 school year

Please take a little time to get to know the school. Take a tour and read about our school on our website. Ask plenty of questions on the tour, and if you have follow up questions, please be sure to talk to the tour guide or any of our enrolled families afterwards. Make sure you understand who we are, our approach to early education, and the responsibilities involved in joining a cooperative preschool.

You can find important information such as program schedule and family responsibilities on the Nuts & Bolts page.

Take a tour

The tour guide (a King Street parent) will take you through the space and will present the school's principles, programs, and policies. We ask that only adults visit the school during the tour since our regular preschool class is in session. It's very tempting for little visitors to want to run and play with our preschoolers during the tour, and while we love this, we have found it can make the tour quite challenging for the parents! Of course, babes in arms are always welcome. Please plan one hour for the visit. All tours begin at 10:30 am. You will receive an application during the tour — they are not available online.

Tours of the school will be offered on the following dates:

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Friday, March 24th, 2017

If you are interested in going on a tour of our wonderful school, please contact our tour guide, Katie Sparrow, via e-mail at tours@kingstreetcooppreschool.org.
