Enrollment

When  a vacancy occurs within an age grouping the Enrollment Committee will  meet to determine who should be offered the opening. Although  applications for unborn infants are accepted, they will not be  considered for enrollment until the Center is given the actual date of  birth. Priority for enrollment is given to children whose parents are  employees of the Federal Government. According to Federal Guidelines the  Center must enroll at least %50 children of Federal Government  Employees.

Admissions  are based on the date of enrollment applications and efforts to  maintain a diverse population of children. The selection committee  therefore gives due consideration to enrolling a balance of boys and  girls, children of all races, ethnic backgrounds, and income levels.  Special consideration is also given to applicants who are siblings of  children currently enrolled in the Center.

‚ÄčThe  Enrollment Committee may also base its decision on whether to enroll a  child by looking at the projected enrollment of the next group into  which the child will enter. If the projected figure indicates that their  groups will be at their maximum when the child is scheduled to enter  the group, the committee may decide not to extend an offer to that  child.
