Maternelle Admissions Practices

The following steps of the application process must be completed by February 1 for priority consideration for TPS (early preschool for 2 1/2 year-olds) through kindergarten for the next school year. We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis after that date.

  • Online application and $100 application fee
  • Parent/Guardian Questionnaire (included in application)
  • A teacher recommendation form completed and submitted online by your child's current teacher (if applicable)
  • An Admissions Meeting with members of the Admissions Committee. Your child may also be asked to spend part of a day in a classroom if entering kindergarten to evaluate academic abilities and social/emotional skills. Please contact the Office of Admissions to make arrangements after you submit your application and fee.

Admissions decisions for applications completed by the February 1 priority deadline will be made in March and April. For applications received after February 1, offers of admission will be made on a space-available basis once the above steps have been completed.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Admissions with any questions regarding our programs. We will also be happy to update your child's admissions status. You may reach us at or (503) 292-7776 ext. 1310.
