Our PlayHouse accepts applications through the year, but we will begin offering spaces to new families on February 1st for the upcoming school year. If we have an opening during the school year, we reach out to families that are on our waitlist.

DSC_0054Applications are reviewed carefully and are considered based on availability as well as the gender and age balance of the class. We strive to cultivate a community of families that believe that children should be respected for the competent natural learners that they are, as well as their need for exploration and play. Our PlayHouse Preschool welcomes all families regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability or any other legally protected status.

Scholarship and Financial Aid Application


Once accepted, you will be notified by email. If you wish to accept the space offered, you would be required to submit an enrollment fee, supply fee, and deposit in the amount of one month’s tuition. View our Admission FAQs for more information about our schools, enrollment, tuition, and scholarship options.

Once enrolled, Our PlayHouse will keep in contact with families through the start of the school year with news about community events, summer camp, important dates, and information pertinent to the start of school – including scheduling a home visit for you and your child.

Visiting Our PlayHouse

At Our PlayHouse Preschool and Kindergarten we deeply respect the children’s learning environment and therefore are mindful about interruptions to their day. With that in mind we have a few opportunities for you to see the classrooms and learn more about our program.

If you would like to tour the school prior to submitting an application you can sign up to join a group tour, offered about once a month, or you can attend our Open House in January. To find out when the next scheduled group tour will be held please contact the school of your choice through the link below.

Families who apply to our program can schedule an individual tour. To apply, please complete an application for Durham and our director will reach out to you to schedule a time to see our school. This application secures a spot for your child on the waitlist at Our PlayHouse.
