Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten Application Process
The application process for Orange County Pre-K and Kindergarten begins with a mandatory Early Childhood Orientation Evening – please go to our Events Calendar to see specific dates for these events.
Applications may be completed at any time throughout the year, but those received prior to the application deadline will receive priority. If there are spaces remaining following this first round of applicants, additional applicants will be considered.
Participation in our Playgroup program is beneficial, but is not a requirement for consideration to Pre-Kindergarten.

- If there is space available in the class, the application will be forwarded to the Early Childhood Faculty for discussion and decision based upon class size and make-up.
- If agreed, the applicant and parents are invited to a Family Interview with the two class teachers.
- If it is agreed that it would be beneficial, the student may be invited to visit the class for one or more days.
- A decision will be sent in writing to the applicant.
- If an offer has been made, a student may not begin class until Registration has been completed.
Once your application is “complete” with all of the above, we will schedule a Shadow Day and Parent & Student Interview.
Applications are considered “complete” and will be processed when all of the above has been received.
Decision letters will be mailed after interview and shadow day has been completed.
After a student has been accepted, an end-of-year transcript from the student’s current school should be provided to:
