Priority Application

Now that you’ve taken an opportunity to learn more about the preschools in the area, we are delighted that you’ve chosen to apply to The Berkeley School.

Priority applicants have the advantage of knowing that they have a space at the ECC by late winter so that they can plan and begin to get familiar with the community. Families can choose the 10-month contract option which spans a typical school year from September through June. There is also access to the summer program if that is what your family needs by choosing the 12-month contract option which runs from June of 2021-June of 2022.

Who Can Apply?

This application process is open to all 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old ECC applicants who submit their application by January 15, 2021.
