Parents begin the admission process by making an appointment to attend a Parent Information Meeting. This is a time for families to meet the directors and tour the school. This meeting is for adults only, please. After this meeting an application may be submitted with a non-refundable application fee of $35.00. We begin enrollment during early Spring for the following Summer and Fall. If your child is offered an enrollment space, you may then arrange to visit Alaya with your child. When there is space available, new admissions are considered at other times of the year. The enrollment director will contact you when space is available.


Children may be enrolled for as little as two half days (8:30-12:30 for toddlers, 8:30-1:00 for the two older groups).   Most of our children are enrolled for a full day (8:30-3:30). Early drop-off (7:45-8:30) is available for an additional charge. Parents may choose from three attendance options: Tuesday/Thursday; Monday/Wednesday/ Friday; or Monday through Friday.


To be in our youngest class children need to be 2 by the end of September of the year they enroll. The children remain together for the full year and will be turning 3 as the year progresses. In the middle class, the children are 3 by the end of September, turning 4 over the course of the year. In the Pre-kindergarten class the children are 4, turning 5 over the course of the year.
