Admission Considerations

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.

Information Sessions

Mission Kids holds several information sessions per year. These events provide prospective families with the opportunity to ask questions, see classrooms, 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.

Enrollment Notification

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.
