REGISTRATION FOR THE 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR:
Students and siblings of our current families are given the opportunity to re enroll for the following year, and any remaining peer model openings are filled by lottery drawing. The selection process will be for the children who are new to Easton Public Schools preschool programs. To enter the lottery, the application and a $100 non-refundable deposit must be submitted by February 10, 2023. A wait list will be created once all available openings are filled. The wait list does not carry over to the following school year. Students chosen for the 2023/2024 school year will be randomly selected on February 14, 2023 from all applications received by February 10, 2023.
Following the lottery drawing, parents are notified by email the week of February 27th as to whether their child's name is drawn to fill an open slot. Children will be placed in classrooms according to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices, as indicated on your application. Applications will be randomly selected, and based on your requests, placement will be given based on remaining openings matched to your program preference.
Once all available openings are filled, we will continue to draw names to establish the order of a wait list. The $100 deposit is returned by mail to the families who are on the waitlist.
