Details for 2017-2018
Open registration for new families takes place February 3rd and thereafter until all classes are full and waiting lists begin.
Online Form Registration
On February 3rd, at 7:00 am, as you log in and refresh your computer the registration form will pop up. Please complete the entire form and your choices for class days and times and submit. Please fill out the form completely and correctly, as this becomes the data base to notify you later about placement. Please select as many choices as you are willing to accept for preschool. Please submit your registration fee before February 3rd as part of the registration process. Checks payable to HBCPK $100.
This online format does away with our past history of all night camping in the parking lot, or car lines until midnight.
If you are not able to register online, you can stop by the school office on February 3rd or later, after 9:00 am and fill out a paper registration form, attaching the registration fee. This application will be sequenced in with the other emailed forms according to the date and time you registered.
You will have until Feb 2nd (or prior to 7am, Feb 3) to remit your registration fee to us (checks made payable to HBCPK and dropped off or mailed to PO Box 182, Haymarket, VA 20168; remember to put your child's name in the memo portion of the check). This means we must have your check by Feb 3rd registration start time-7am($100) to process your paperwork and provide a spot for your child. You can pay early, and we'll hold it, such as leaving it on Open House days (Jan 28/30).
By late February or early March you will receive either a confirmation letter or a phone call, stating your status for the 2017-2018 school year. Remember, we fill classes on a first come-first served basis. We will attempt to give you your first choice, and if unable, we will contact you about accepting your second or remaining choices. Whichever choices you select on the registration form, we will contact you about those, and offer those to you as they are available. If you choose not to accept one of the choices you selected on the registration form, you will not be refunded your registration fee. Make sure you only check off classes you are willing to take for your child. The more options you are willing to accept, the more likely you will get in. For example, if you'll only take MWF mornings- when other options arise, we will not call you because you did not list it as one you would accept.
Once we have discussed options with you by telephone, we will send you a confirmation letter. You will have a date to accept the position by, and must return the completed confirmation form, signed and including the fees for curriculum and one month's tuition (this is called the tuition deposit, which is held for your May 2018 payment in preschool, or June 2018 for K).
Good luck to you, we hope that we will be able to meet the needs of your child and family this next school year.
Please note that you cannot register earlier than February 3rd at 7:00 am. If you attempt to register earlier, we will not honor your registration, or hold it until the 3rd.You will simply not be registered at all. So please register at your appointed time to avoid disappointment.
Past history has shown that classes are sold out within minutes. The online registration will remain open until 8 am on February 3rd. After this date and time, the online registration will no longer be an option for you. You can come into the office to fill out a form.
If you are put on a waiting list, do not give up. We occasionally open new classes in the late summer, if we have space, and children do move or withdraw for many reasons, even into the fall time frame. Your registration check will remain attached to your form until we have placement for your child, or until October 1st, at which time we will shred your check, but retain your registration form should changes occur beyond October.
If we contact you with a placement anytime between February 3rd 2017 and October 1st, 2017 and you decline the position, your registration fee will not be refunded. Please feel free to contact the office with any further questions.
