For Families

Enrollment is open to all children ages 2 years to 5 years old and is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority however is given to Fullerton College faculty, staff, and students. Once a child is enrolled they are continually enrolled until they are kindergarten eligible or if the child’s family decides to move to another program. The wait list form can be found below or by visiting the Laboratory School.

Application Process 

All prospective applicants must fill out a waitlist application packet.

Prospective applicants are invited to tour our school. Tours take approximately 30 minutes. We encourage families not to bring their children on initial tours of our school. Once we have a spot for you, we welcome you to come back with your child to a visit.

Tours of our school for potential families are given on Wednesdays and Fridays by appointment only.

For waitlist information or to schedule a tour, please call Summer Marquardt at (714) 992-7069.
