  • What happens after I send in my application?
    Shortly after you apply, you will receive a confirmation email stating that the school has received your application and that your child has been placed on our admissions list. You will then be notified if a spot becomes available.
  • How does the admissions list work?
    Applications are accepted at any time and are organized on the admissions list according to date of receipt. If there are no openings at the time your application is received, your child’s name will be placed on our admissions list. If a spot opens up during the school year, we fill it by contacting families on our admissions list, also in the order in which applications were received.
  • How do you fill open spots?
    Spots are filled in the order in which applications were received. When building the next year’s class, an effort is made to achieve balance in the age and gender of the students. Siblings of current and former students have priority in admission.
  • Can you tell me what number I am on the admissions list?
    Unfortunately, we are not able to tell families where they are on the admissions list. Spots may open up at any time, and as a result your child may be able to get a spot at the school even if you are at the bottom of the list.
  • When will I learn if my child has a place at the school?
    Our application deadline is the end of January 2024. We will begin contacting families in March about open spots. If you have applied to the school and are on the admissions list, you can expect to hear from this point forward. If you are offered a spot, we invite you to visit the school with your child during school hours and ask that you make a commitment within two weeks from our initial offer. Spots may also open up throughout the school year. If this happens and there is a spot available for your child, you will be contacted.
  • How can I request a tour?
    We'd love for you to visit our school, please email to set up a convenient time.
  • When is the Open House?
    We will host 2 Open Houses this season: On Nov 30th at 8:30pm we will host a virtual open house over zoom. Our director will give a short presentation and you will get to hear from a few current families about their CPP experience. There will be time for questions too. On December 2nd, we will host an in-person open house at the school from 3:30 to 5pm. Families are welcome to bring their children (please note there won't be a childcare option, but we're happy for you to visit the school with your child and explore our spaces). The Director will give a short presentation at 4pm and the rest of the time will be available to see our space and ask questions of our director and admissions. Please feel free to come and go as you need within this 3:30 to 5pm timeframe. We look forward to meeting you. If these times don't work or you want to see the school sooner, we are happy to meet with you and give you a tour, please email to set up a time.
  • What is the tuition for 2023-2024?
    Please see the tuition page under the Apply to CPP menu for current rates.
  • Can you explain more about the "cooperative"?  What types of jobs and responsibilities do parents have?"
    Clinton Path Preschool thrives because of the active participation of our families and their various professional backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences. As co-op members, parents perform diverse administrative and maintenance tasks, participate in planning and policy-making for the school, and have access to a community of families and teachers. The school welcomes and encourages parents to join their children at lunch, providing a relaxed opportunity for discussion with other parents and teachers. In addition to performing a co-op job, parents take part in two work days each school year, attend three or four parent meetings throughout the year and participate in our fundraising events. We recognize that many of our families have busy lives and careers and we have taken care to delegate our jobs efficiently and support one another so no family should feel that the commitment to helping in our school is too overwhelming. We do not require any in-class support commitment from families.
  • How does the Extended Day Program work?
    Our regular school hours are from 8:00am until 12:30pm. We have extended day options until 1:30pm (lunch), 3:00pm, or 5:30pm. For those staying after lunch, there is a rest/quiet time and more fun and games afterward. You can sign up for extended day for every day for the whole school year, or some of the days, or even on a day-to-day basis if space permits.
