In House Registration: Families of current students receive priority when registering for the coming school year. In general, this process ends near the third week in January. Please see the VPCP calendar for exact dates.
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 the established deadline (normally in late January). We will send a letter confirming your child’s 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. All registrations submitted after the deadline 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 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.
