Online Enrollment Application

To streamline the registration process, we have implemented a system designed specifically for families who are ready to enroll their child. This system will guide you step-by-step through the necessary information required to complete the registration process.

Before you begin, we kindly request that you carefully read through the following instructions:

  1. Completion of Forms: All forms must be filled out prior to your child’s start date. This will ensure we have all the necessary information to provide the best possible care and education for your child. All DFPS required documents are also needed. For minimum standard compliance, please be prepared to upload the following: Immunization Records and Health Statement, Pre-Kindergarten Vision & Hearing screening results, and if applicable, full court orders relating to custody.
  2. Flexibility in Completion: You don’t have to complete all the steps at one time. Feel free to stop and log out at any time, and rest assured your information will be saved. You can pick up where you left off whenever you’re ready to continue.
  3. Required Information: Throughout the registration process, you will notice red asterisks (*) next to certain fields. Please ensure you provide the requested information wherever you see this symbol. If a field is not applicable or you are unsure of the answer, simply enter “N/A” or “Unknown” so that we know it was not overlooked.
  4. Registering Multiple Children: If you are enrolling more than one child with us, you will be able to copy all the information from the first child’s application into the subsequent child’s application. At the end of the process, you will find an option to “Fill Out for a Different Child.” By selecting this, you can easily replicate the necessary details and make any necessary changes for the next child.

We hope these instructions provide you with a clear understanding of the registration process. Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for you to join the Stepping Stone School community.

Should you have any questions or require assistance at any stage of the enrollment process, please do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff at info@steppingstoneschool.com. We are here to support you and ensure a smooth transition for your child into our school.

Once again, we extend a warm welcome to you and your family. We look forward to embarking on this educational journey together, nurturing your child’s development, and creating a foundation for a lifetime of learning.
