We want to make sure that the Child Study and Development Center (CSDC) is the right match for your family and that you have clear understanding and appreciation of our goals, philosophy, and curriculum approach. Because of the large numbers of applications we receive we typically don’t offer pre-admission tours of the center except for our full-day kindergarten program. At the same time, we understand that there may be circumstances that make an early tour desirable – such as when families are moving to the area and have a limited window to visit. We also offer an Admissions Open House for our Kindergarten program in early December.
Once your child has been offered admission to the center (typically in the spring) we require that you attend a center orientation and tour session prior to confirming enrollment except in cases where you have had another child previously attend CSDC or have already taken a tour. Our tours are conducted in small groups at various times to accommodate different schedules and last about 30 minutes. In the meantime we invite you to carefully tour our website, including the specific classroom sites and newsletter to gain insight into our programs. Another excellent source of information is to talk with other families in the community that have attended or are attending CSDC. Please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
