Enrollment

Thank you for considering Blakemore Children’s Center for your child and family. Enrollment eligibility is granted without discrimination with regard to sex, color or creed.  Any child aged 6 weeks to 5 years is eligible for enrollment provided the program can meet the needs of the child. Enrollment priority is given to siblings of children already enrolled and to children whose parents are actively serving in the military.

 

Our tuition reflects the low ratios of children to caregivers as well as the extensive professional development and training of our educators. Limited financial assistance is available. Please contact us for more information about our scholarship fund. 

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Do you have a waitlist? How do I place my child on your waitlist?


Please fill out the waitlist application (see pdf below) and drop it in the mail with a check for the $100 fee.




How long is the waitlist?


Wait times vary based on the age of your child and the availability of openings. We enroll year-round.




Do you serve meals?


Yes! We have an on-site cook who prepares a nutritious breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. We follow guidance from USDA for meal components and minimum serving amounts. There is no additional fee for meals.




Do you offer before/after care?


No. Tuition rates include the entire day of care (7am-5:30pm).




Can I tour the school?


We would love to tell you more about Blakemore! Please contact us to schedule a tour.




How will I be notified when my child is eligible for an opening and what are next steps?


If your child becomes eligible for an opening, you will hear from us by email or phone. Upon acceptance, the last month’s tuition is due to secure your child’s spot. This amount will be applied to your account when we receive the required 30-day written notice of withdrawal from the program.
