Infosessions are the first step for parents considering Windsor Preschool, offering the opportunity to understand our school’s unique mission and program. Infosessions are adult-only events and childcare is not available. Children are welcome for subsequent, age-appropriate visits.
At an infosession, families can expect a presentation covering:
- Our philosophy & approach to curriculum
- Who the teachers are and what matters to them
- Our commitment to parent-teacher communication
Infosessions are hosted at the Mountain View facility* on select Tuesdays and Thursdays and run 10:15am-12:00pm. The session begins at 10:15am sharp and includes a presentation and Q&A session followed by a campus tour. There will be opportunities to speak directly with teachers on the tour.
*Though infosessions are held in Mountain View, they cover information about all campus locations. A second visit will be scheduled at the campus you are interested in.
Next Steps after Infosession
After the infosession, families submit an Admission Application with an application fee.
Then families, along with their children, are invited for a classroom shadow visit.
Windsor Academy accepts children from 2-5 years of age. Children will be placed in classrooms based on their age and developmental maturity.
Children are chosen based on age eligibility, application materials, and a classroom shadow visit.

Q: Why don’t you list your phone number?
A: Email correspondence is our preference since management is hands-on in the classrooms with our children all day. Enrolled children are our priority during care hours and we direct as many resources toward them as we can. If you require a quick response, please prepend your email subject with “Urgent.” Otherwise, we respond to inquiries in the order we receive them (during busy weeks we are responding to hundreds of inquiries).
Enrolled families use an internal email address to get quick responses from us. Each classroom is also equipped with a phone, so parents can reach us instantly in case of emergency.
