*Due to COVID-19, we will only be offering Prospective Parent Tours and Information Sessions via Zoom call until further notice. The Prospective Parent Zoom Tour will include an informative presentation about the Reggio philosophy at St. John’s, a video tour, and a Q&A with the administrative team and several families.


Important Dates

Priority applications, members of the parish and siblings, are due October 31. All other applications are due January 31. In February , children attend scheduled playdates with their parents. Families are notified about admissions decisions by the beginning of March.


Children must be 2.5  years old by September 30 of the year they will enter preschool. Parents of children who do not meet the age requirement are welcome to visit, but the regulation, according to the District of Columbia, must be strictly enforced. Special consideration for admission is given to families who are members of St. John’s Episcopal Church, children of staff, and children whose siblings attend the preschool.

Tuition Assistance

Need-based Tuition Assistance Grants are available for families who experience financial hardship. As funds are limited, tuition assistance is not guaranteed. St. John’s Episcopal Preschool uses School and Student Service for Financial Aid to process financial aid applications. Grants are awarded in the spring for the following school year. St. John’s Episcopal Preschool accepts qualified families regardless of race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, or cultural background.
