The Young School Interview Application
Thank you so much for your interest in enrolling your child in The Young School at SixTwelve. We are happy that you are considering our program. Each March we give our current parents the opportunity to let us know whether or not their students will be returning the following fall semester, so we begin our interview process with new parents and kids in April. If you would like to be added to the list for interviews, please fill out the form below and we will contact you toward the end of March/beginning of April. These interviews consist of watching your child play with our current students, participating in our program for a day and meeting with you in order to make sure we understand each other's expectations. This ensures that our program is a good fit for your child.
We only accept 10 students per year and registration is allowed only up until the end of September. Once we have a class dynamic set, we believe it is better not to disrupt that balance by enrolling new students throughout the rest of the school year. Our acceptance of students is based on our availability and the readiness of your student for school. This will be determined by a rubric we have set, i.e. if they are potty trained 3-5 year-olds who are able to participate in activities, listen to others, follow instructions, self-sooth or allow others to sooth them out of tantrums. We hold nap time from 12:00noon to 2pm for those that will nap. If your child is not a napper, that is totally fine, but they must be able to play quietly in order to protect that time for those who do. If they can not remain quiet, we offer the option of leaving between 11:45am and noon so as to provide an atmosphere of peace during this quiet time.
Please fill out the following form below and we will be happy to contact you for an interview.
