Waitlist Policy

At Saint Miriam – the region’s only Franciscan STEAMM school- we have experienced unprecedented growth, as well as our continually updated improvements on keeping our facilities and educational environment up-to-date and challenging.

We have also expanded our educational opportunities based upon community need. This has also created a waitlist and many of our coveted classrooms. To accommodate this waitlist need, we have developed a simple policy to be fair to all families seeking enrollment. One of the most important things you can do is to start looking for daycare and preschool opportunities as soon as possible!

A Note on Infants:

Due to licensing ratios, infant care classrooms openings are especially hard to find, so you should get on a waiting list right away! We recently added two additional care rooms and they currently already have an extensive waitlist. Don’t wait for your baby to be born before you start looking for care.

Our Waitlist – General:

Requesting a full-time opening will help you obtain a spot sooner. Our general waitlist is first-come-first served rotational. In other words, everyone is added to a general waitlist dated by your registration and inquiry and when there is availability for a particular desired classroom, we will reach out to the list in order of applications. There is no guaranteed enrollment until you are contacted and informed of the opening, and then you will have the ability to accept that opening or pass until the next opening occurs. When accepting the opening, a non-refundable deposit of 1/2 month’s tuition is required to secure the spot.

Our Waitlist- Guaranteed:

To guarantee a desired start date we request a deposit of one month tuition for the desired classroom with a predetermined start date at which time regular tuition is due. We will coordinate a start date with you and your child. Please note that this deposit is non-refundable.
