Registration Process

  1. LNS General Registration Form (PDF): covers initial application for all programs (includes a request for a $35 non-refundable registration fee). Fill in and email or mail to the director (a check to “LNS” should be mailed with the child’s name on it).
  2. Our director will contact you by regular mail once class spaces have been allocated (normally by the end of January).
  3. In the acceptance package (to be returned by March 15, 2017) there will be:
    * a contract agreement (includes your commitment to cover annual tuition fees)
    * the parent handbook (detailed information about the school)
    * a request for a non-refundable $200 deposit to secure your child’s place (which will be put toward your tuition fees for June, the final month of the academic year)
  4. In the summer, the director will contact you to welcome you and your child to the program. At this time, we normally ask for some information from you to help us to get to know your child.
