Infant/Toddler & Preschool Wait List Policies
- We assess available spots in each class and go down the wait list to fill those spots. Occasionally a spot will open in a class during the school year. All spots are filled directly from the wait list.
- When offering a space from our waitlist, we look at a number of factors, including requested start date, birthdate, gender. We also look at siblings of currently regularly enrolled in a Footsteps Child Care after school or preschool program, and families whose requested schedule most closely matches the available opening.
- As the child ages up, the child will be moved to the appropriate age group, according to the date of the registration and the date care is needed. The aging up process will not affect the child’s place on the registration/wait list.
- When you are contacted, please respond as soon as possible; although notification is sent according to position on the waiting list, interviews and tours will be scheduled in the order that responses are received. Families who do not reply within a week will be removed from the wait list.
