2020-2021 Registration Information
Thank you for your interest in the Beagle School! For your convenience we have placed our registration form on the top of this page. (Please also note: New York State requires all children entering preschool to submit a doctor’s form showing that their immunizations are up to date. The only exceptions to this requirement are if the family physician recommends against immunizations for a medical reason. In this case, a written statement must accompany the Health Assessment Form/Physical Form. All health forms must be received before your child enters The Beagle School. )
Current Beagle School families receive priority when registering for classes. Current families may hand in the registration materials beginning December 9, 2019 and should have their materials in no later than January 3rd, 2020.
Are you an alumni family? (Child enrolling is a sibling of a former Beagle student or the child of a former Beagle Student.) We will collect alumni registration materials during the registration period for current families and place them prior to opening up registration to the general public on January 13th.
Any applications mailed in will be opened at the end of business on respective registration days.
Please note that we will continue to accept preschool registrations after this date until our classes are full. We do maintain wait-lists for all of our programs.
Completed registration packets MUST include the Application for Enrollment, a signed Financial Agreement, and the appropriate registration fee. (See letter to parents for full instructions.) Completed applications can be mailed to 115 Regent Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 or dropped off at any of our open houses.
