Upon receipt of your application, you will receive
notification by email (or regular mail if you do not provide
an email address) that the CDL has received your application and
status of your child’s enrollment. In most instances, your
child will be placed on a waiting list as the CDL runs at full
capacity throughout the year. The center does not charge families
to be on the waiting list. Once an enrollment slot is offered,
the annual registration fee is due to hold the slot until enrollment
begins. (see Tuition under Program Details).
The center typically
enrolls in August of each school year. Enrollment decisions are
made in the late Spring Semester. Families will be
contacted we are able to offer a slot. Families are offered enrollment
based on several factors aside from the date of application. The
classrooms are typically balanced by gender and age. Returning
families and families who are enrolling a sibling are considered
The Child Development Lab enrolls for two different
enrollment periods: the Academic Session (August 1 through May
31) and the Summer Session (June and July). Families do not have
to enroll for the summer; enrollment can be held over the summer
as long as tuition is current and the registration fee has been
paid for the following school year.
Families are welcome to contact the center to check
on the status of their application. Due to the large number of
waiting list, the center cannot contact each family on a regular
basis. However, periodically families on the waiting list may be
contacted by the CDL to update the application; this is typically
by email or mail. It is important that families reply to these
inquiries. It is also important to notify the center of any changes
in contact information that may occur while your child is on the
waiting list. If we are unable to locate you to update the application,
your child’s name will be removed from the waiting list.
If your child does not get in by the date you have requested, he/she
will remain on our waiting list and move to the appropriate classroom
(younger preschool, older preschool etc).
