What are my chances of getting in?
Very good, especially if you apply to the 2-day program as a 2.9-3 year old.
How many spots are open to new families and how many are filled by existing CNS families?
Each year is different depending on the number of children moving into a Kindergarten program.
Does it matter when I return my application? Should I try to get it in early?
Yes! First come, first served!
Why is it necessary to prioritize/preference my program choices on the application?
This allows the registrar to provide the best fit for your child.
What are my odds as a new family of getting into the 3-day extended program?
Not as good as getting into the 2 day program, as many of our returning families follow the progression of a 2-day to a 3-day program. It is possible, especially if you get the application in early, as every year is different.
Will accepting a spot in the pogram that is not my first choice improve my chances on the waitlist for the program I wish to be in?
Yes, get in wherever you can - the list moves and shifts as the year unfolds.
What happens if I have twins (or other multiple births) going through the registration process?
We love twins and siblings and we do our best to honor the parent's ideal placements for their children.
What is the teacher to child ratio in a typical class?
Generally, we have no more than 13 children per class. Each class has a staffed teacher and teacher's assistant.
