Admissions and Application

ENROLLMENT AND WAITLIST
The CDCLR’s priority is to serve families of Virginia Tech faculty, staff and students.  With a few exceptions, enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Parents can put their child’s name on our wait list by filling out an application form during pregnancy or anytime thereafter.  See below to download an application.  Applications forms can be dropped off or mailed to:

Child Development Center
Attn:  Enrollment
140 Wallace Hall
Blacksburg, Virginia 24061-0416

Families who are admitted will receive a phone call confirming their acceptance into the program.  We encourage parents who have children with special needs or families of diverse backgrounds to put their child’s name on our waiting list.

If a family already has a child at the CDCLR, they are given priority over new families for enrolling another child.  Because we are a laboratory school, with the exception of families already enrolled at the CDCLR, the program reserves the right to selectively look for specific age-range or gender when filling spaces.  In addition, enrollments may include one or two children who represent a diverse range or experiences and backgrounds from the extended community.

TUITION AND FEES
Enrollment is for twelve months.  A one-month deposit is due when the child is accepted into the program.  The deposit is non-fundable and counts as the 12th month’s payment.  Tuition for the 2011-2012 school year is $815 per month for the toddler room and $790 per month for the young and older preschool rooms.  Tuition rates are assessed annually.

PROSPECTIVE FAMILY TOURS
We encourage you to call and set up a tour to learn more about our program and see our facility.  Please call our Director, Karen Gallagher, 540/231.9815 for an appointment.  Tours are for parents only, please.
