Step 1 - Application

After the application has been submitted, you will receive further information about the following steps. 

Step 2 - Teacher Information Form

Your child's current preschool/daycare teacher will be asked to complete a Teacher Information Form for the year in which he or she is applying. We encourage teachers to email or mail these forms directly to GDS after completion.  If your child does not attend any type of school setting, this form will be waived from the process.

GDS may contact your child's current preschool or childcare program to set-up a time to visit your child in his/her current, familiar environment. A family may also request this visit if they feel it would be beneficial and necessary to the application process. 

Step 3 - Parent Questionnaire Form

No one knows your child like you do! Parents will be asked to complete a Parent Questionnaire to help us better serve your child and family. 

Step 4 - Admission Screening

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

Early Childhood applicants will attend a Saturday morning Play Date during which teachers will observe and engage the children in a variety of social and academic activities. The purpose of the play date is to see how children interact with peers and adults, as well as observe age-approrpiate school readiness skills. 
 
Families will be notified by the Admission Office when play dates are scheduled.

*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 must be received prior to play dates being scheduled.
