We are currently accepting applications for our elementary (K-5) and middle school (6-8) programs for the 2018 -2019 school year on a space available basis. Please call (858) 576-2120 to speak with us regarding specific grade level openings.
The following outlines the steps of our application process:
Schedule a Tour
You may click here to schedule a tour. You may also contact us by phone at (858) 576-2120. During the tour you will have the opportunity to ask questions, visit the classrooms, and hear what makes The Child’s Primary School (TCPS) a unique educational community.
The Application Packet:
- Application for Admission Form for each student you wish to be considered, which also includes records release and the permission to evaluate.
- Teacher Recommendation Form(s) – This form is to be completed by one of the student’s teachers if in grades K-5, or by two teachers if child is entering middle school (grades 6-8).
All application forms can be completed online, or on hard copies mailed directly to TCPS.
(Middle School applicants please note: both the Math and English Teacher Recommendation Forms are required)
Schedule an Evaluation
Once all materials are complete and we receive the $125 non-refundable application fee, we will schedule a time for your child to meet with one of our teachers for the evaluation. The goal of this 45-minute interview is to begin to get to know your child.
Receive Written Notification
Once all documents have been returned to The Child’s Primary School and all evaluations and assessments are completed, parents will receive written notification of a decision regarding placement at TCPS. It is expected that this process will take a minimum of two weeks.
- Priority Consideration Deadline: February 2nd, 2018
- Decisions for applications completed before February 2nd will be sent out in March, 2018.
