Admissions Policy

We are delighted that you have found us! As you begin your search to find the right preschool for your child and family, please understand that our admission considerations include the following:

  • New Canaan Community Preschool gives preference to current school families, alumni families, and New Canaan residents but welcome families from the surrounding towns
  • Families who embrace the program and curriculum and want to work as partners with the school in their child’s development
  • Accepting children of varying abilities and backgrounds who we feel will benefit from our program

NCCP will consider requests for placement in a particular program, although we will determine the developmentally appropriate program and class assignment for your child.  NCCP does not guarantee that children will be placed in the same or different group as any other particular child. NCCP will consider the requests of parents/legal guardians with respect to the placement of siblings.

We encourage you to come visit us in person to see Where Play has a Purpose in action!
