Seedlings School Year Program
LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE! There are openings in our Petunias (young 3’s) and Pre-Kindergarten Program for the 2019-2020 school year. Contact us here for more information!
Registration for our school year program is processed in the following order:
First, we register those families currently enrolled in our Seedlings program, followed by their siblings (who are not currently enrolled). After this is complete, we then finish registration in this order:
- LOPC Members
- Families on our current school year waiting list, which closes in January
- Community Members
Current Seedling Student Registration – 2020-2021 School Year Program
For those currently enrolled in the Seedlings program, registration is done by priority numbers. Children of Seedlings/LOPC staff are accommodated first, then children of Board Members. The priority is then determined by family enrollment dates-the date which your oldest child first began at Seedlings (you must be continuously enrolled). When families have the same family start date, church members are served first and then a lottery system is used to assign numbers. If you wish to register a sibling of a child who is currently in the program they will be registered after all children in the program are served, based on your priority number. Your currently enrolled child has priority in the next consecutive class. If you wish to skip a class because your child is age-eligible, the children who are moving up have priority, and then anyone who is skipping will be served based on priority.
Current Seedlings Families will receive registration packets on their child’s cubby beginning February 4th. Registration forms are due with the annual registration fee on February 21, 2020. Confirmation emails will be sent the week of March 2nd for the 2020-2021 school year program.

Important Registration Guidelines
- Space in all Seedlings classes is limited and may be filled by current Seedlings children and their siblings. If a space is not available at the time you register, you will be placed on the wait list for a $50.00 nonrefundable fee (this will be applied towards the annual registration fee if you are placed in the program during that school year).
- After the LOPC member registration on March 12, 2020, we will then slot in anyone who has renewed their wait list status via email (this would be in response to an email sent to each current wait list family the first week of February). Then we will enroll community members on Thursday, March 19th.
- If you have questions please contact the Seedlings office by emailing us. Thank you for your cooperation, we look forward to seeing you soon!
