School requirements

It is a good idea to prepare the following requirements to facilitate your child’s enrollment.

  • Birth certificate of the child Baptismal Certificate (for other Catholic schools)

  • Marriage Certificate (unless single parent or not married)

  • 1×1 photo of child

  • Accomplished Application Form from school

  • Other requirements from the school

How to choose a school that is right for your child

Parents should choose a preschool based on the quality of the teachers, the policy enforced by the preschool Director, resources, the overall environment and fit for your child, not so much on its written education philosophy.

Oftentimes, when you talk to preschool directors, you will find that they like to emphasize their education method.

Parents are, therefore, led to believe that they should pick a right preschool based on the marketed philosophy.

However, preschools do not need any accreditation to use the names of those education methods. Subscribing to a philosophy does not guarantee it will deliver the same type or the same quality across the board.

Your child’s experience will mostly be shaped by the teachers, the environment and the policies of the preschool.

It is more important to understand how the teachers are interpreting and incorporating that philosophy into their teaching than whether they have a certain buzzword in their marketing brochure.

To choose a good preschool, after narrowing down several that fit your budget, schedule and commute, schedule a tour. During your visit, talk to the teachers and staff. Observe closely to see if they meet the criteria in the next section.

This directory contains tuition fees for some schools. Note that this information is subject to change and it is best to call the contact information listed for each school to ensure appropriate fees and payment methods for your child’s education.
