2019-2020 Registration

The registration window for currently enrolled, returning students, their siblings, and congregation members of the Wasatch Presbyterian Church (In-House Registration) is January 1 - 31, 2019. The registration window for new students, not currently enrolled (Open Enrollment) is February 1 - 28, 2019. Register and submit online, print forms from our website and return in person, or obtain forms from the preschool office. At the close of each registration window, students will be placed (until capacity is reached) and Acceptance Letters will be sent via email with further instructions on securing placement.

Registration Information

Wasatch Presbyterian Preschool is one of Utah’s finest. We operate at or near capacity, with many parents desiring the same classes for their children. Our registration policy strikes a balance between parents’ wishes, current preschool attendance, and our paramount goal...meeting our students’ educational needs. To achieve this goal, the Preschool Director must make choices each year about proper/fair placement. In-House and Open Enrollment provide the framework for the placement process.

In-House Registration

Priority is given to members of Wasatch Presbyterian Church (who are verified by the Children’s Ministry Director) and currently enrolled, returning students and their siblings.  Students will remain in our program as long as they are continuously re-registered.  Each year parents fill out the appropriate form, and after receiving an Acceptance Letter, submit a $135 non-refundable registration fee and the last month’s tuition by the appropriate deadline. This demonstrates their intent to return the following school year and guarantees placement.

The Director places currently enrolled students into classes based on several key factors:

  1. First and foremost, the well-being of the school, student-body, and teachers are considered. This includes special attention to things such as, boy/girl ratios, separation of students when deemed to their benefit, separating or keeping twins and triplets in the same class (based on input from doctors, parents and teachers), etc.

  2. We randomly select forms to ensure all returning students and their siblings have the same chance to get into their preferred classes and to eliminate the need for parents to wait in line to register. Listing first, second, and third choices is a requirement when filling out the registration form, and it must be understood that not all returning students and their siblings will get their preferred choice of classes.

  3. When forms for returning students are not turned in during the In-house Registration window, those students will then be included in the Open Enrollment process along with new students applying to the school.

  4. Parents of returning students will be notified about the registration results by email shortly after the January 31st deadline. They then have one week to pay the registration fee and the last month’s tuition or be subject to the Open Enrollment registration process.

Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment occurs after the In-house Registration window closes. Parents fill out the appropriate form, and after receiving an Acceptance Letter, submit a $135 non-refundable registration fee and the last month’s tuition by the appropriate deadline. This demonstrates their intent to enroll for the following school year and guarantees placement.

  1. As mentioned above, the well-being of the school, student-body, and teachers are considered. This includes special attention to things such as, boy/girl ratios, separation of students when deemed to their benefit, separating or keeping twins and triplets in the same class (based on input from doctors, parents and teachers), etc.

  2. Through a lottery-style process, we randomly select forms to ensure all new students have the same chance to get into their preferred classes and to eliminate the need for parents to wait in line to register. Listing first, second, and third choices is a requirement when filling out the registration form, and it must be understood that not all new students will be guaranteed placement.

  3. We notify parents of new students about the registration results by email shortly after the February 28th deadline. They then have one week to pay the registration fee and the last month’s tuition or be dropped from the registration process.

Note: If you do not receive placement initially, or if you prefer/require a different time frame, please contact Christy Lawlor in the office @ 801-487-2641 to put your child’s name on the appropriate wait list. Thank you for your respect and understanding of the process.

Registration Tuition and Fees

To enroll your child in Wasatch Presbyterian Preschool, you must complete the appropriate Registration Application within the respective registration window and return it either electronically or in person. Once an Acceptance Letter is received, you must submit a $135 registration fee, plus the last month’s (May) tuition. The registration fee and the last month’s tuition are non-refundable. The last month’s tuition holds and guarantees placement and is credited toward May tuition only. Tuition for September through April is due on the 1st “class day” of every month, with late fees issued after the 10th of every month. To qualify for each program, children must be age-appropriate on or before September 1st. For more information regarding age requirements and class offerings, click here.
