Believe it or not, it is time to think about registration for the coming school year, which begins in August. While we just reopened from the winter break, late January is our typical timeline. Other local preschools conduct registration on this timeline, and we want to stay competitive.
Registration for the 2022-2023 school year opens next Wednesday, January 26, and will close on Tuesday, February 1. I will distribute the electronic registration form on Wednesday morning. Children are placed by seniority at FUMP, so all requests are due on Tuesday, 2/1.
Registration fees will be added to your next tuition invoice: $250 for the first child, $225 for siblings. You may register multiple children in a single registration form. As this is coming on the heels of reopening, we have not set our tuition rates for next year. We predict that we will have a 3-5% tuition increase. We will be setting our tuition a little later this semester, and thank you for your patience.
Do you have more questions about class placement, age ranges, redshirting a PreKindergarten child? Please let me know. We can discuss your family’s preferences and needs.
From our Parent Handbook:
Available placements will be filled in the following order:
- Children of FUMP staff members.
- Children of FUM Church staff members.
- Currently enrolled FUMP families.
- Previously enrolled FUMP families.
- FUM Church families not currently enrolled in the Preschool.
- Members of the community not currently enrolled in the Preschool.
Choice of days is determined by seniority, and seniority is based on a family’s length of enrollment. Class placement is based on children’s birth dates. The Director determines final placement.
**Summer registration will begin on Tuesday, March 22. Our summer dates will be released after receiving the Austin ISD calendar for the coming year.
Watch your email on Wednesday for the registration form.
