Re-enrollment

It is time to re-enroll your child for the 2017-2018 school year. Our first priority is to accommodate returning families and younger siblings of current families. We will be sending out acceptance letters to new families early in February. Therefore, we need a commitment from all of you who are returning and/or planning to send a younger child by Tuesday, January 17, 2017.

If you plan to enroll a younger sibling, please fill out a separate application. This application along with the $30 fee is also due by Tuesday, January 17, 2017.

All families must fill out the form below. Even if your child is transitioning to kindergarten, you must fill out the form in order to get your deposit back. (Deposits will not be returned until the summer.) If the form is not returned, we will assume that your child is not returning next year and you do not want your deposit back.

This re-enrollment form will hold your child’s place in the Big Backyard for the following year. If for any reason you should need to withdraw your child’s enrollment after January 17, 2017, please do so in writing. If you withdraw your child after April 1st, 2017, your deposit will be forfeited.
