All families are required to send an application to Studio Creative Play in order to be considered for enrollment. We will acknowledge receipt of your application.
We gladly accept applications for Venni Studio for children who are at least 30 months of age.
Placement in the program is not conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. We have an application deadline, which is usually some time at the end of January. We do our best to make a notification date that is concurrent with other preschools. When the application deadline is past, we again review all of the applications. As a relationship-based program, we prioritize currently enrolled families, siblings, and returning families. Once these members are placed, enrollment is open to new families.
Families are placed from the group of applicants to create balanced classes in terms of age range, gender, and cultural diversity.
When we offer a placement for September it is with the understanding that it will be for a commitment of September - June, although we register for 2 semesters, September - December, which is a 12 week semester and January - June, which is a 22 week semester. We occasionally have a January opening and welcome inquiries. In December of each year we host an orientation for families who are interested in applying to Venni studio for the following Fall. The orientation is an adults-only evening and is held at our site in the Ethical Culture building at 53 Prospect Park West between 1st and 2nd Streets. There is a presentation by SCP Director and Founder, Khahtee V. Turner, on the complete Venni Studio mission, philosophy and program experience and the co-teaching staff are available for questions.
We do not offer tours or visitation at any other time of the year, with one exception. Prior to placement notification in mid-winter, we arrange play groups for children for whom we have received applications to Venni Studio for the following Fall.
If you have questions about the application process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
