Learn how your child can join the Longfellow community

Parents considering a placement for their child are invited to visit Longfellow Preschool starting in mid-October of the year prior to enrollment. At that time, families will have the opportunity to observe the morning program and meet with the director and teachers to learn more about Longfellow’s philosophy, policies and procedures. Applications are available at the time of the visit. Receipt of application by Longfellow Preschool does not automatically indicate acceptance into the program. Acceptance is based upon the following considerations:

  • Maintaining a balanced gender and multiage group
  • The number of spaces available in a given year
  • Priority consideration to Longfellow alumni families, Mount Ida faculty and staff

Longfellow accepts students into the program by mid-December. At that time, a $500 nonrefundable deposit is required. To schedule a visit please contact Marlene Greenstein, Director.
