Registration

 

2023 – 2024 Registration

Monday, February 13 – Registration opens for current students and siblings

Tuesday, February 21 – Registration opens to the community

At New Philly, we enroll children 12 months to five years old. We operate 9am-12 noon with the option of adding lunch and extending the day until 1pm. Our year starts the Tuesday after Labor Day and ends the Friday before Memorial Day.  We offer a high quality early childhood education experience and use Creative Curriculum, which emphasizes learning through play. Our Pre K  program uses Letterland to introduce letters and phonics. We value warmth, love, language rich environments, learning to be a part of a community, and utilize inside and outside space for movement. At New Philadelphia, we believe that children learn by doing and value the process rather than the product.  

 We will be offering tours of our preschool starting the week of January 30th through February 3rd. You may schedule a time during this week between the hours of 9:30am and 11:00 am. To schedule a tour, please send an email to director@newphiladelphiapreschool.org.

Please reach out with any questions and let us know if we can assist you in making your preschool enrollment decision in any way.
