Bright Start 2022-23 School Year Enrollment Policy

 

Bright Start After School, Inc. has a capacity of 130 children each day. In an effort to make enrollment as fair as possible, all in-school after school programs will have the same enrollment dates. Bright Start gives priority to returning families and siblings. Our enrollment policy is listed below.

 

There are 4 groups of applicants that need to be considered for enrollment:

a) Returning families and new Kindergarten siblings

b) New Kindergarten families

c) Families on our wait list from the previous year

d) Families applying to Bright Start for the first time

 

Children are allocated days using the following rules in order:

  1. Group (a) children and their incoming siblings are offered a spot.

  2. Group (b) spots are offered until we reach our space limit. This is done through a random lottery system so all families are considered equally. After we reach the quota, Kindergarten families will be placed on the waiting list.

  3. Group (c) spots are given in the order they are on the waiting list.

  4. Group (d) spots are given until we reach capacity. This is done through a random lottery system so all families are considered equally.
