Application Steps

We look forward to working with you and your family. Please follow the steps below to complete the application process.  

1. Meet us at a Parent Information Event:  We offer a variety of events designed to meet the needs of prospective families. Small World introductory events are held in the evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. These events provide an overview of the Small World Program, our mission and our vision as well as a vivid insight into our teachers, students and classrooms. We also encourage you to attend an overall Avenues event if you are interested in learning about the other divisions. Register for an event here.

2. Fill out an application: The application is available here.  

3. Schedule your small group conversation. Once you submit the application, the admissions office will send you information to schedule your small group parent conversation.  This conversation is designed to allow you to learn more about Avenues in a smaller group setting and visit the classroom during the school day.

Please note that this program is not considered part of the Avenues Early Learning Center division. Families who join the Small World Program and would like to enroll in the Avenues Early Learning Center for nursery the following year will follow the sibling admissions process. More details on this process can be found here.

4. Complete Your Parent Statement. At Avenues, we consider parents as partners in the education of our students. Share anything that you feel will help us better understand your family and your child.
