Steps to Enrollment

  1. Attend an Open House (Windows on Waldorf – WOW), schedule an Observation Morning (for parent and child to observe free play and circle time), or schedule a private tour.
    Please note: We only admit children who are 3.5 years old by June 30.
  2. youngGirlCooking Submit an application through our online registration service: TADS. Click on the beige button: “TADS” at the bottom of the page to begin this process. An application fee is required.
    TADS is an online registration service that allows you to complete paper work at home (if you have an internet connection), and make payments over the web. Otherwise, TADS will send you forms via US mail. Each family has their own account, password protected, so all of your information is confidential.
  3. If your child is attending or has attended another preschool program, contact the office of Azalea Mountain School with the name and contact information of the school so that we can arrange to have your child’s school records sent to us. We will also send your child’s former teacher a questionaire to be completed. We suggest that you inform your child’s previous program administrator of our intention to contact them.
    Prior to acceptance to our program, applications will be reviewed by the lead Kindergarten teacher who will then contact you to discuss your child’s needs and family’s goals.
    Attention parents who are reenrolling: Check with the lead teacher first if you are wishing to move your child from one of the 2 day, 3 day, 5 day programs to another before reenrolling.
    Please note: due to the popularity of this program, applicants to the Kindergarten Program are placed in a waiting pool. Completion of all of the above steps secures each family’s order in the wait pool.
  4. Upon your acceptance phone call from the Kindergarten Teacher, return to your TADS account, and complete the supplemental information. Please pay the classroom supply fee within 10 days.
  5. Families who choose to apply for financial aid (only for program option: 5 day) may start the process at any time after submitting their application (see step 2). Click here to start.
  6. Upon the receipt of the classroom supply fee, TADS will email or mail you a billing agreement; please complete to finalize your child’s enrollment.
