Step 2: Tour the school

When a spot becomes available, you will be contacted and asked if you are still interested.

Children are, of course, welcome on tours.

Step 3: Complete Enrollment

Following the tour, if you would like to enroll your child, please send us an email within one week of your tour. If our Director agrees that your family will be a good fit for our school, we will send you our enrollment packet.

Enrollment packets must be received within two weeks of your tour date in order to secure enrollment. All information must be returned before the child can be enrolled in the LHMS program.

Note: Immunization form and health care summary are required by the State. As a licensed child care provider, we are required to document that all children have up-to-date immunization and a health summary.
