Admissions Procedures and Policies
Depending upon the age of the student requesting admission, a variety of methods are used to assess compatibility of the student and family with the learning community. Interviews, visitation, and individualized informal assessments are utilized. Parental goals must be compatible with the Country Day School philosophy and methods. Students with learning problems are sometimes admitted but must agree upon obtaining resource services while at the Country Day School. Transcripts from previous schools are requested and considered.
Please call for availability in all programs. Openings often become available during the school term. Children of all races, religions, and nationalities are welcome.

Plan a Visit
As you begin your search to find the right school for your child, there are many ways you can get to know us better. You will find plenty of information on our website, but we encourage you to visit us in person.
KLA Schools are staffed with caring, fun, and dedicated professionals. Participating regularly in professional development experiences, our teachers are constantly learning about the best ways to teach our students. Observations of each child are taken throughout the day in addition to notes reflecting on weekly projections. Our educators are continually analyzing which ways children learn best, as well as which teaching styles are most effective.
Facilitators in their interactions with children, our educators work to align children’s interests with the learning domains in loving, nurturing, and positive ways. They support students in feeling safe, loved, and valued. Our curriculum addresses the whole child, including academic, physical, social and emotional domains.
We encourage children to think deeper and ask questions as they research different theories. Teachers and children alike invest in researching and collaborating together in order to be a part of each other’s learning process.
Prospect Latin has been so much more than a daycare or preschool for our daughters. For 5 years, the school has been a second home and extension of our family. Our children have developed life long skills that prepare them for elementary school and beyond–problem solving, inquiry, cooperation, and compassion. The teachers and administrators offer a warm and welcoming environment in which young children can thrive. We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity for our children to attend Prospect Latin.

I’ve had the pleasure of sending all three of my children to Prospect Latin. Having my children attend PLS since 2008 and having one still enrolled, I can tell you that the Prospect Latin School is a truly special place. You feel the warmth as soon as you enter the front doors. The children are happy and I have seen them grow emotionally, physically and educationally over the years. The staff are very competent and caring professionals who treat each child as if they were their own.

Our experience and my son’s educational growth at Prospect Latin Preschool is leaps and bounds ahead of any other program in the area! From the front office… The warm greeting we get each morning from Susan and Meredith starts out our day on the right foot. And, our teachers are absolutely amazing! They have the patience, education, organization, and warmth that our child needs and excels from. My son comes home and teaches me! The school is just fabulous. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our experience at the school a 12!

My husband and I are very pleased with the education our daughter receives at Prospect Latin. There is no doubt she is a step ahead in her knowledge and social development. We especially take note of the difference when we see her interacting with her peers that attend “daycare”. The school setting provided by Prospect Latin and use of Reggio Emilia techniques truly allows the children to explore their natural curiosity. This ignites a passion for learning!! The teachers are exceptional with a genuine interest in seeing their students succeed. We believe Prospect Latin is an extension of our family. We have no concerns about our daughter’s safety or wellbeing during the day. We appreciate and honor the Christian values of Prospect Latin. Our investment in education has and will continue to payoff for years to come as our daughter’s core foundation has been built upon helpful tools taught and nurtured through the program.

My husband and I are so happy with Prospect Latin Preschool. One of the top things we love is the communication the school provides regarding our child. We know that if we have any questions or concerns, the teachers and staff are available through email, and/or phone and are prompt in their response. We love the weekly newsletters that are filled with information on what our child is learning in school. It is also comforting to know that all teachers have a degree, are CPR certified and make sure that our child’s safety is a high priority. The amount of knowledge our son has learned since attending PLP is phenomenal. It is amazing to hear him talk about the exciting things he has learned from school and fun to see all the projects he brings home. We personally feel that he will be very well prepared for kindergarten and have PLP to thank for that. Our son has adjusted really well and has an amazing time hanging out with his friends at school. We definitely feel we made the right decision in choosing PLP.

Prospect Latin has been a great fit for our two sons who could not be more different. The school was a safe, loving and nurturing environment for our rule follower and our rule breaker. The school prepared our older son well for an elementary school with a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Our youngest son is finishing his last year at PLS. We have been so fortunate to have spent 6 years as part of the PLS family.
