We are accepting applications for all classes. Applications are due by March 10, 2021.
Our enrollment is completed through a lottery process, with returning families having first priority. All applications received by March 10, 2021 will be entered into the lottery, to be held in mid-March. Families will receive their lottery result and class or waitlist position before April 1, 2021.

Financial Scholarships

Our school welcomes scholarship applications from families who need financial assistance – we encourage you to apply! For the 2021-2022 school year, families who apply for a financial scholarship before March 10, 2021 will receive their scholarship award decisions at the same time as their enrollment lottery result. For more information about our financial scholarships and how our scholarship program works, or to apply for a scholarship, please download the scholarship application linked below.

Alternative Participation Model

Our Alternative Participation Model (APM), is a pilot program intended to increase accessibility to our cooperative preschool.

At RVCP, a typical family commitment involves both working in the classroom on a regular basis and holding a Parent Job to help run the school.* The APM program allows for a family to modify that commitment to double their classroom time and hold no parent job, or hold two parent jobs and have no classroom time. We hope this greater flexibility enables a wider range of families to attend and enjoy the benefits of co-op preschool. New and existing families are encouraged to download and read through the application to see if the program might be a good fit for your family.
*Participants in APM retain all the usual remaining agreements of the RVCP co-op model, including fundraising, cleaning shifts, and monthly parent meetings. Please see the general Enrollment Application for more details on the co-op model agreements.

Enrollment is not restricted, assigned, or adjusted according to race, religion, gender expression or gender identity, sexual preference, ethnicity, or national origin.
