How To Apply
Please fill out an application for each child to be considered for enrollment in our preschool in San Francisco and submit the $50 application fee per family. If your household income is below a certain threshold, your application fee will automatically be waived.
Note: The formal application process for the 2023-2024 school year is currently closed, but we will offer tours for prospective families if space becomes available. If you wish to be considered for the waitlist, you must submit an application and fee.
Mission Kids bases enrollment decisions on a number of factors, including our desire for diversity of ethnicity, language, ability, socioeconomic background, and family structure. We also consider the family’s ability to contribute time, resources, and expertise to the bilingual preschool and co-op community.
Mission Kids holds several information sessions per year. These events provide prospective families with the opportunity to ask questions, see images of the classroom, and meet directors, teachers, and current parents. Attending an information session is a great opportunity to better understand our mission and our community as a Spanish-bilingual preschool in San Francisco.
Registration is required to attend an information session. Click here to register.

Meet and Greet
Prospective families who submit an application by February 23, 2024, and have paid the application fee (or qualified for a waiver) are invited for a Meet and Greet. This event provides an opportunity for our preschool admissions committee to meet your family and allows parents to ask questions in an informal setting. You will receive an invitation to a Meet and Greet via email upon Mission Kids’ receipt of a completed application.

Families are notified of admission decisions on a rolling basis beginning in mid-March. Once a student is admitted to the preschool, a one-time deposit of $600 is required to secure the child’s spot. Should your family decide not to enroll your student after paying the deposit, your deposit will not be refunded.
