In House Registration: We conduct an in-house registration for our current and alumni families first. Registration packets will be distributed in the studentís bags by January 10, 2014. Alumni families can pick up a registration packet in the VPCP office between 9:00 am and noon M-F or one can be mailed to you. Please call 703-255-1419 if you need a registration packet and you have children who have previously attended VPCP. Please fill out one registration form for each child. All in-house registration are due before 1:00 pm on January 17, 2014.
New Family Registration
Remaining spaces will be given out to new families by lottery. Anyone wishing to participate in the lottery must turn in a registration form and a non-refundable registration fee for each child before 10:00 am on January 22, 2014. We will send a letter on January 24, 2014 confirming your childís placement. The registration fee is non-refundable and will only be returned if your child is not offered placement at VPC Preschool. If we cannot place your child in a class, we will place him/her on the wait list and return your registration fee.
The lottery is conducted by the Preschool Director and the Assistant Director. New family registration forms are pulled randomly and assigned to classes as requested on the registration forms. Classes are filled based on maintaining desirable boy/girl ratios and siblings are placed at the time the first sibling is drawn in the lottery.
Interested families may call the office (703-255-1419) after 1:00 pm on Friday, January 17, 2014. We will leave a detailed message with the available openings for new families for our 2014-15 school year.
All registrations submitted after 10:00 am on January 22, 2014 will be processed at the END of the lottery. Registrations received after the lottery will be placed on a first come, first served basis.
If Fairfax County Public Schools are closed or have a two-hour delay, the deadline for participation in the lottery will be 10:00 am on the next business day that Fairfax County Public Schools open on time.
If we are full at the time of registration, you may elect to get on our waitlist. We often have significant movement after registration and many families on our waitlist will have a space by the time school starts in the Fall. We will continue to register new families throughout the Spring and Summer until the school is full.
