Please click this link to fill out our waitlist form. There is no fee to join the 2021-22 waitlist.
Our waitlist is created annually during our enrollment period. When a program fills up (has reached the maximum number of students) and its enrollment is closed, families are welcome to sign up on the program waitlist for their preferred program/s. If/when any spots become available in a previously closed/full program, we notify families on the program waitlist. This occurs whenever a spot opens (whether it’s in the summer before school starts, or mid-school year). Some programs are more popular than others, so waitlist lengths vary. We cannot guarantee that families on the waitlist will be able to enroll.

APRIL 2021: We’re excited to announce a new 10-hour preschool program at Dottie Harper Park and the Burien Community Center! While our typical program enrollment happens on a first come, first served basis, Dottie Harper Park / Burien Community Center enrollment will happen differently. Instead of opening enrollment, we are starting with a waitlist sign up. This waitlist is open to everyone, and there is no cost to submit a waitlist form. Please sign up on the waitlist by May 17th, in order to be considered for the first round of enrollment for the Dottie Harper Park / Burien Community Center 2021-22 school year. We will notify families by June 1st of their enrollment or continued waitlist status.
For enrollment, we will be prioritizing families in the area who are seeking longer/full-day childcare coverage and those who qualify for the Working Connections Child Care subsidy. This means that once the enrollment form is available, we will first send it to these local, working families to complete their enrollment and secure their spot for next year. This enrollment process is designed to prefill half of the spots with local families and children who will benefit the most from a full-day outdoor preschool option. Please visit the location page to learn more about this new program.
Once enrollment begins for our current families in mid-March, we aim to update this section regularly.
We begin our enrollment period with currently enrolled families who have the option to re-enroll for next year. Current families will have access to our 2021-22 school year enrollment in mid-March. In mid-April, enrollment information will be available on this page (as our enrollment form and/or as our program waitlist, depending on current capacities).
To complete enrollment for the 2020-21 school year, there is a non-refundable $50/student registration fee to cover administrative costs and a $350/student enrollment deposit, which is used to secure your student’s spot and towards the last month of tuition. This deposit acts as tuition guarantee for Tiny Trees in the event of an early withdrawal, including if a family withdraws during the period between registration and the start of class.
