New-to-the-Settlement Preschool, Day School, and Kindergarten families begin the admissions process by creating a new online registration account and visiting our campus for a Parent Visit.
Enrollment in any of our early childhood classrooms requires your child[ren]'s campus visit and the completion of the Enrollment Application for Preschool/Day School or Kindergarten. Once you’ve scheduled your visit, we’ll contact you to talk about next steps.
The following schedule will guide you through the TMS admissions process.
The admission process for the 2018-19 school year begins with an inquiry and visit to our program.
The Parent Visit is a self-guided tour through the building to view Early Childhood “in action” and an informational session with our administration.
Complete and submit the online application at themusicsettlement.org. A non-refundable application fee of $25 is due with all applications.
Child Visit (required)
A Child Visit allows you and your child to join a play group for prospective students in a classroom. Your child will gain a sample view of a “school day” at The Music Settlement. Call the Early Childhood office at (216) 421-5806 ext. 160 to schedule. Child Visits are held monthly on Mondays at 1:00pm.
Prospective students that have completed the application process (submitted the application and complete a child visit), will receive a letter in the mail regarding placement status for the 2018-19 school year. We are currently processing applications for all Fall 2018 programs at our Ohio City and University Circle locations.
