We offer online enrollment. The links above will go live at 8:30 am on each enrollment day. Once you submit your form you will receive confirmation that it was received. Enrollment will be entered based the order in which it was received (responses are time stamped.)


The Enrollment Form will ask basic questions:

  • Email
  • Child’s name & date of birth
  • Parent’s name
  • Contact info: primary phone and address
  • Number of days you wish to enroll
  • 1st & 2nd choice of days you wish to enroll
  • You will be asked to agree to this statement on your enrollment form:


I agree to submit payment of the Enrollment Fees to St. John's PDO in person or by mail no later than the date specified in my enrollment email. If payment is not received I understand that my enrollment application will not be processed.


Fill out a separate form for each child you wish to enroll. We will use the time stamp for your first child for your family enrollment.


Your child will be place in classrooms based on their date of birth. You do not need to choose a classroom for your child.


The 2022-23 School Year Registration Fee is $125 per child. This fee is non-refundable. We also require you to prepay a portion of your first month's tuition. This tuition will be held in Kangarootime (our billing & communication software) as a deposit toward your September tuition. It will show as a deposit on your statements. The total due per child is $280 ($125 + $155/tuition) and can be paid by cash or check made out to St. John's PDO.


You will receive an email of your enrollment status and due date for enrollment fees approximately one week after you enroll.

Our Learning Philosophy & Curriculum.

At St. John’s, we believe in the value of play and therefore offer a play-based curriculum that includes lots of indoor and outdoor play, sensory activities, and social/emotional support. This means that there may not be a physical product sent home each day with your child, but we assure you that he/she is learning so much during the time spent at St. John’s. Our preschool classrooms will be arranged by centers and will follow both a play-based curriculum as well as include academic and sensory activities that are age appropriate and will develop skills necessary for Kindergarten and beyond.


In Fall 2019, we implemented the Frogstreet Curriculum to help children reach developmental milestones, both Academic and Social/Emotional. Frogstreet has Conscious Discipline built into the daily classroom environment. Conscious Discipline creates a learning environment where children know they are safe and loved. The children will begin to learn how to solve conflicts, manage their emotions, and take responsibility for their actions. Frog Street also provides the building blocks for math, literacy and science to prepare our students for Kindergarten.

Extended Care & Covid

In the past, we have offered Extended Care--Early Care starting at 8 am and After Care until 3:30 pm. Due to Covid restrictions we are not able to offer this service. If the situation improves and we no longer have to keep the students in their classroom cohorts, we will re-evaluate offering Extended Care.
