Registration for morning preschool classes for the 2018-2019 school year begins in January. Priority is given to full members of Chevy Chase United Methodist Church (full membership by December 1st of prior year), children currently enrolled in the program and their siblings, and to alumni families. Spaces remaining in the program after priority registration are assigned on a lottery basis in early February. To be considered for the lottery, parents must register through our online system and pay a $50 application fee either by credit card or electronic check, by 3:00 p.m. January 31, 2018. Wait lists are assembled by children’s birth dates and gender, and are maintained for classes that are fully enrolled. After students are registered into their morning classes registration for afternoon enrichment classes will open (Adventure Afternoon, Spanish Immersion, and French Immersion). Priority advance registration is given to members of Chevy Chase United Methodist Church until May 1st. Remaining spaces are assigned to Preschool families on a first come basis. It is not necessary for a child to be toilet-trained to enter the morning preschool program. However, only those children who have had their third birthday and who are fully toilet trained may be enrolled in an afternoon enrichment program.
