Preschool & Daycare Registration

All new registrations for preschool and childcare will be put on a waitlist while we work with

our local government to determine the best way to provide a safe learning environment for your children.

As soon as a determination is made, we will notify families.


Registration is now open for returning families. New families can begin registering March 4, 2020.

Enrolling in the Dooley Center is a two-step process:

  1. Complete the Registration Packet and bring it to the Dooley Center along with your child's birth certificate and current immunization record. 
  2. Complete the Dooley Center’s online registration to sign up with our bookkeeping department. Online registration is required but does not guarantee enrollment.

Current 3-year-old students moving to the 4-year-old program do not need to resubmit the registration packet. Parents will review past information and sign it at Dooley.

All Tuition-Based Programs
