Admissions FAQ

How does the application process work? 

New members are welcome to apply for the next school year after the January Open House. On the day of the Open House, a link to our application will go live. We will send you confirmation upon receipt of your application and all required fees. In the spring/summer, you will receive a Welcome Packet with all the paperwork you will need to complete before starting class. (Please note that some paperwork must be completed by your doctor and your child's doctor). For families of children enrolling in the 3’s and Prekindergarten programs, you will be contacted about which parent job(s) interest you.

For the 2’s program, application and all mandatory fees must be received by October 25th and the latest date students may begin is November 1st.
Midyear enrollment inquiries for the Three's and Prekindergarten programs should be sent to membership@catonsvillecoop.org.

My child has a birthday after the September 1st cut off date. Can I enroll my child a year early? 

We follow the Baltimore County Public Schools' birthdate cut off guidelines, which is September 1st.  Children entering the 2’s, 3’s, or Pre-k classes must be 2, 3, or 4 years old respectively by September 1st of the entering school year.

Does my child need to be immunized to attend? 

Yes, all children must have the immunizations required by MSDE and Office of Child Care. Due to the nature of our program, we have many younger siblings that frequent the older sibling classrooms and who are receiving babysitting services on-site. Many of the younger siblings are not fully immunized due to their age. Because of this, we cannot allow older children who are not immunized to compromise the health of other members. We are sorry if this causes any inconvenience, but we must think of all of our members’ welfare. The only exception to this policy is if your child has a medical condition that prevents them from currently being immunized. You must submit documentation with explanation from your child's pediatrician.  All health forms and any necessary documentation must be submitted with enrollment paperwork in late summer.
