Application Process

Apply to Wheatley

Before enrolling a child at Wheatley:

1. Call the school to arrange a tour of the school. During the tour you will have an opportunity to view our environment and learn about our curriculum. Come prepared to ask many questions. We will be glad to answer them!

2. Submit the application for admission form to the school. The application for admission form must be accompanied by an application fee of $100. This deposit will assure your child a place on the waiting list for the session you specify. It will be refunded only if the school is unable to accept your child.

3. Make arrangements to observe a class in session. When we receive your application for admission form, our office will call to make an appointment to have you observe a class in session. We feel this is a very important step in the process. By observing a class in action, with children learning, you will obtain a clearer understanding of our educational philosophy.

4. Arrange for an interview with the Principal and visit your child’s class. The interview will give us an opportunity to discuss our teaching methods and review expectations from the perspective of the school and the home. Your child’s visit will give him or her an opportunity to be introduced to the class before the first day of school. We request both parents be present at the interview if possible.
