Enrollment Process

It’s time to think about school. Whether you’re wondering when your child should start preschool or how to select the right child care, we’d love to meet your family to show you how much fun your child will have with us. Many first-time parents ask us how the child care enrollment process works so here is a quick overview to answer your questions.

Step 1 – Check Enrollment Availability

If you are interested in enrolling your child at Flanagan’s Preschool, the first thing to do is to contact your campus of interest. Have your questions ready as we are excited to learn more about your family’s needs and how we can help to support them.  We are here to help you through this very important process, making it as easy and informative as possible.

Step 2 – Visit our School

You will be invited to visit the school and meet with the School Director. You’ll see the classrooms, meet your child’s teacher and have time to observe any portions of the day you would like. We will do everything in our power to accommodate the start date that meets your needs. If there is a waiting list, you can secure the next available space by paying a registration fee and placing your name on the list. We will continue to stay in touch and when an opening becomes available, the Director will contact you immediately.

Step 3 – Take Advantage of our Free Discovery Day

Enrolling in a new school is a very important transition for you and your child. We want you to know that you’ve made the right decision enrolling your child at Flanagan’s Preschool and we want your child to feel welcome and comfortable in their new classroom.

That’s why we provide a Free Discovery Day. Your child will experience a day of fun & learning and get acquainted with their new friends and teachers.

Military Families

Many of our schools have partnered with the National Association Child Care Resource and Referral Agency (NACCRRA – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, National Guard and Reserves) to offer active duty military assistance and reduced tuition rates when child care at a military installation is not available. We accept Military fee assistance from NACCRRA. Visit for eligibility requirements.  Contact your School Director for information.
