Admissions

St. Stephen’s Preschool welcomes children ages 1 – 5, regardless of race, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, or family configuration.

Our enrollment priority for fall and summer classes is;

1. Continuing students,
2. Children of Church members*
3. Siblings of currently enrolled students
4. Everyone else, including former families who do not have a student currently enrolled in the program.

Public Registration will take place the last Saturday in February and during school hours thereafter. Brochures will be mailed in January. We begin that mailing list the previous October.

To schedule a tour and/or request a brochure, you may contact us by phone at 661-259-8527. An appointment is required to visit the school unless your child is currently attending.
