Step 1 - Application

After submitting the application, you will receive further information about the following steps. 

Step 2 - Teacher Information Form

Bengal Tot (2-year-old) applicants are required to submit a Developmental Questionnaire. This form may be completed by a teacher, caregiver, or parent. 

For Bitty Bengal and Jr. Kindergarten applicants, your child's current preschool/daycare teacher will be asked to complete a Teacher Information Form. If your child does not attend any type of school setting, or their school is closed due to COVID, your Admission Counselor will provide you with an alternative form.

It is the family's responsibility to give these forms to their child's current teacher/school. We ask that these forms do not get completed until December 1. 

Step 3 - Parent Questionnaire Form

No one knows your child like you do! To help us better serve your child and family, parents are asked to complete a Parent Questionnaire.

Step 4 - Admission Screening

All applicants for Early Childhood are required to participate in a developmentally appropriate screening.

Due to COVID, Early Childhood applicants will attend a one-on-one virtual screening during which teachers will observe and engage your child in a variety of social and academic activities. The purpose of the screening is to see how children interact with others, as well as observe age-appropriate school readiness skills.

*Please note that acceptance to the Early Childhood Program does not guarantee acceptance or space in Kindergarten. Read more information about "Deciding What Comes Next."


Application fees and required forms must be received prior to screenings being scheduled.
