ADMISSIONS PROCESS

We are pleased that you are considering Hillel Preschool to meet the early childhood education needs for your child. Choosing a school that supports Jewish values and teachings is one of the most significant decisions your family will ever make. We are confident that you will be pleased with the quality and dedication of our staff, the curriculum, and our outstanding facilities.

Hillel Preschool welcomes families from all walks of life to its preschool. Please read below for more information on the admissions process.

 

1. APPLICATION FORMS 

Parents are to complete and submit a Hillel Preschool Registration Form (PDF) for each child. Please see form for non-refundable application fee amount that must accompany the application. Before your child enters school, we will need a signed Certificate of Immunization Status and the Family/Medical Information sheet.

 

2. SCHOOL VISIT

All families are invited to tour the school and talk informally with the admissions staff. Our Director will give you a tour of our facility and get to know your individual interests and expectations.

 

3. REVIEW

This phase occurs after all parts of the application have been received and the student and family visits are completed. Families are kept up to date on the status of each application, especially if teacher recommendations or school records have not been received. For each applicant, the Director meets with the faculty members who observed the student. The completed application is then discussed with the Admissions Committee.

 

4. NOTIFICATION

The last phase of the application process is notification and, if the student is accepted, issuance of an Enrollment Contract. The Enrollment Contract must be signed and returned within ten days with a non-refundable tuition deposit. The signed contract and deposit secure the applicant’s place at the Preschool. The deposit is credited against the second tuition installment. Please note that no application is considered until all parts of the application are received.

 

If you need assistance in completing the application, or for any other information, please call the office at 919.846.2449.
