Wait Pool Policy

London Waldorf School has written this policy with the following considerations in mind: fair and timely assessment of applications, and creating healthy classes with a view to long-term enrollment stability.  We do not accept fees to be placed in our wait pool.

Parents with children on the waitlist and whose applications are under consideration are encouraged to learn more about Waldorf education and to attend parent education talks and introductory events.

Programs offered at London Waldorf School have limited spaces available, and as such, we are not always able to accommodate all applicants. In order to ensure we do not exceed our capacity in a given program, applications for the next school year, as well as mid-year applications for full classes, are placed in a wait pool.

Regulations in our CCEYA-legislated Licensed Care Programs and London Waldorf School policies affect various aspects of the number and make-up of each classroom environment, thereby affecting the wait pool.

Generally, the school utilizes the following criteria to determine the wait pool ranking:

1. Students already enrolled in licensed care, kindergarten or grades programs on December 31st will have first priority in the program recommended by their child’s teacher for the subsequent year. The teacher will consult with the parents prior to making this recommendation.

2. Parents of currently enrolled students who wish to newly enroll a sibling in our school’s regular program (not including those attending our Home Schooling Visitor Day or the Parent and Child classes)  and faculty members wishing to newly enrol their child will have second priority.

3. Third priority is given to families of children who enrol in the current year after December 31st, but before February 1st.

4. Fourth priority is extended to students enrolled in our Home Schooling Visitor Day or Parent and Child classes.

5. Families who are new to the school are given fifth priority.
