Decisions are based on a holistic view of the child, including the child’s ability to learn, receptivity to language acquisition, interaction with other children, positive demeanor.


Each class has its own unique balance of students, and in order to find the best fits for openings in these classes, we look for the specific attributes of a child that would mesh the most naturally with the rest of the class, rather than a child’s rank on a waiting list. Because of this practice, it is very difficult to predict an applicant’s chances for admission. However, we will do everything that we can to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have along the way.


Admissions is also looking for a shared educational philosophy between the school and the family. Children must be potty trained before they start school.


We welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family in person to share our school’s true experience. Please contact us to schedule a private tour. (908) 232-9550
