2022-23 Application Procedures

Reach out to Andrea Megroet about availability for the 22-23 school year: 248-837-8900

Applications will be accepted during the early application kick-off week May 16th-20th, 2022.  Students will be considered in order of their scheduled days, with 5 days/week students first, after all applications are received.  Signing up for 5 days/week and changing to less days at a later date may result in you going on the waiting list.  Please only sign up for the days you need, so we can try to accommodate everyone that turned in applications during the kick-off week.  If availability allows throughout the school year we will accept new students on a first come first served basis until we reach maximum capacity.

Once the program is full, students will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when space becomes available. If you are placed on the waitlist for Kids' Zone care you will be notified when ANY day you have requested becomes available. 

When enrolling during the school year, applications must be fully completed and the enrollment fee paid before you are notified of acceptance. 2-3 business days are required to process the paperwork before your student can attend their first day. 

Please return completed forms online, by fax 248.546.9238 or via email to Andrea Megroet
