Admission is open to all, regardless of race, gender or religious affiliation, and to students who will broaden the socioeconomic, racial, cultural and religious diversity of the school. Registration for the general public is done by lottery each spring.
August 31st is the cut off date for students. Example: If your child will be 3 years old on or before August 31, 2014, they will be in the 3 year old class. If he/she is 3 years old after August 31, 2014, they will be placed in the 2 year old class.
Tuition is based on the child’s age and number of days attended:
When registering siblings, a discount of 10% is available for the younger sibling.
The DMWS Board of Directors has decided to make a few changes to this year’s registration process. The changes should help the school offer classes that best align with demand. In order to hold a spot for next year at the time of registration, you will pay a registration fee of $75 for returning students ($85 for new students). All registration fees are non-refundable.
