Enrollment Timeline* 

*Enrollment timeline described below is during a typical, non-pandemic year, and may vary for the 2022-2023 school year.


Typically, during a non-pandemic time period, we begin accepting applications starting in mid-October for the following school year. Rolling admissions are accepted until June 15th.  


An Open House for new families is held in early January. Applications for the next school year will be available during this time (and below) and must be submitted by the end of the month for enrollment consideration. If you are unable to attend one of the open houses, contact us to schedule a private tour!

Current Meekins Members and Alumni families are emailed a survey requesting their intention to re-enroll or withdraw for the following year. Families that do not return their survey by the mid-January due date will not have preferred status for registration over new families.  


The Membership Committee meets to compile class lists for the following school year. New families are offered enrollment or wait list placement. A child’s position in the school is only secured once two Enrollment Contracts and a check for contract fee, registration fee and a deposit of May Tuition are received by the Membership Team. Failure to return all forms and fees will result in forfeiture of a place in the class.


Enrollment and Registration form packets are sent to all families accepted for the following school year. 


Enrollment and Registration Forms are due in early April.


May tuition deposit is considered non-refundable after June 1st in the event of a withdrawal.

You may contact membership at any time at membership@fbmeekins.org

The enrollment form for 2022-2023 can be downloaded here.

FB Meekins is a cooperative preschool in which parents play an integral role in their child's classroom experience and in the operation of the school. The result is a tight-knit community of teachers, parents and families working together to create a fun, safe, and nurturing environment in which our children can learn and grow.


FB Meekins Cooperative Preschool admits any student of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities, generally accorded or made available to students at this school.  Meekins does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, hiring of employees, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
