What to Do

How to Apply

Admissions are open year-round at LightHouse Kindergarten and there is no deadline for application. New children could be admitted mid-term for school year 2023-24 or for the beginning of the new academic cycle, starting in September 15, 2024. Early enrollment for September 2025 is also offered for children born in 2022.

We aim to provide every assistance for inquiring parents and we encourage them to contact us via phone or email to schedule a personal meeting and a guided tour around our facility. Meetings are held individually for each family to facilitate them in receiving all information needed for their decision to apply.

New students are admitted and placed in a specific level based on their year of birth. For the school year of 2023-24 new applicants are placed as follows:

  • Level K3: Children born in 2020/2021
  • Level K4: Children born in 2019
  • Level K5: Children born in 2018
  • Level K6: Children born in 2017

LightHouse Kindergarten administers selective admissions policy and each child goes through a procedure of entrance assessment before being registered. All admissions are subject to availability of placement.
