Forms for 2018-2019 are available now
Open registration for new families takes place February 5th and thereafter until all classes are full and waiting lists begin.
Most of our forms are available on this website, find links to each below, or under the 'Just for Parents', "Back-to-School" section. Please complete these new forms for your child, ensuring that you are completing forms dated for the 2018-19 school year. These forms must be returned by Aug 24th. Returning the forms over the summer helps us get information to your child's teacher. It is also helpful in preparing for those with allergies and epi-pens.
The following requirements and documents are mandatory before a child can attend Haymarket Baptist Church Preschool & Kindergarten:

Immunizations must include all shots required by Prince William County and the state of Virginia. This form is available in our office, or by clicking here to print a copy to take to your pediatrician. If your child has an allergy that requires routine or emergency prescription medicines such as inhalers or epi-pens, be sure your pediatrician or allergist has completed the portion of the form that diagnoses the allergy and the course of action/epi-pen. Parents must complete and sign the 1st page of this form. Immunizations go in the middle section, and the physical report is the last page. If your doctor provides this information for you, and places it in an envelope- please OPEN the envelope, and complete page 1, as parents and sign.
- Child's original birth certificate or a certified copy thereof must be presented for us to copy. Notification of birth (hospital, physician or midwife record) birth registration card or passport is also accepted.

Due to the facility's space constraints, the curriculum content, and the behavioral expectations, consideration for enrollment into our kindergarten program may include an interview with or observation by the director. Acceptance into our program will be based upon what is best for the child and for our school. All enrollment decisions are final and are at the discretion of the director and school council.
