ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS

Thank you for applying to be a part of our Melrose Family. Here at Melrose, we use the Reggio Emilia Approach to education, as well as the Conscious Discipline philosophy for social skills and self-regulation. Reggio Emilia believes that children have 100 Languages and we use those languages to further their growth and achieve academic goals. Admission requirements are designed to assess a child and their family’s readiness for Melrose. 

No child will be considered for admission until we have the requirements listed below. The information we receive will be used during the enrollment process for acceptance into our program at Melrose.  

Melrose Avenue Preschool bases their choice of placement based on the following:

  1. Current School Family

  2. Observation Component

  3. Family Questionnaire

  4. Academic, Social, and Emotional Progress

 

We do not base our placement of students on race, color, religion, or gender identity
