Which classroom should I enroll my child?
We enroll Infants beginning at two months through fifteen months. Our Young Toddler classroom begins with students who are fifteen months by September 1, 2017. The Young Toddler classroom ranges from fifteen months through to two years of age. The Older Toddler classroom ranges from two years of age through to three years of age. Our Preschool classroom ranges from three years of age through five years of age. Contact Yal-Day-New to learn your child’s appropriate classroom placement based on your child’s birth date.
When can I enroll my child at Yal-Day-New?
We are a full-academic program from September through August, operating year-round. The 2017-2018 school year begins on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. We enroll students year-round when space is available. If a student enrolls during the full-academic school year, the tuition is pro-rated, in accordance to the start date for their enrollment. To clarify, a family does not pay full tuition for the entire academic school year, but on the first day of their child’s enrollment.
