The first step to enrolling at CPS is to view our Virtual Tours. If you have more questions after watching our online tours, please email our director, Emma Standish. The next move is to fill out an online application.
Priority registration is offered to applicants in the following order:
Students who are currently enrolled in Congregational Preschool
Children of First Congregational Church families
Children of CPS employees
Children whose siblings are currently enrolled in CPS
Children of previous CPS families
The deadline for priority registrants is March 12. After the deadline, priority registrants will get the same consideration as an open registrant.
The deadline for open registrants is March 19. We will continue to accept applications throughout the year if we still have open spots and/or if families wish to be placed on our waiting list.
The age requirements to register for each class are as follows:
Twos Program: Incoming students must be 2 years old by September 1
Threes Program: Incoming students must be 3 years old by September 1.
Fours Program: Incoming students must be 4 years old by September 1.
Class Placement and Fees:
An email confirming a place for your child in Congregational Preschool will be sent by March 27. If we are unable to offer a placement, we will notify you that your child has been placed on the wait list.
In order to hold your child’s place, please submit payment for the $100 Registration Fee by May 1 and for September tuition by June 1. Fees can be paid in the form of a check submitted via mail to CPS: 1050 E 23rd Ave, Eugene, OR 97405. Registration fees are non-refundable after May 1 as long as CPS offers a placement for the student. Information about our Tuition and Scholarship policies is available here.
