Enrollment

Registration

Early registration for families currently enrolled in the Early Learning Center or for member families of Risen Savior Lutheran Church begins the second Monday of February. Public registration begins the following Monday. The school year coincides with Chandler Public Schools and summer programming is available.  In order to be registered, we must have the completed enrollment packet, including a copy of the child’s immunizations, and the registration fee.  Each year, children must be re-registered.

Re-enrollment is not automatic and spaces will be filled on a first come basis.  Registration fees are non-refundable.  Risen Savior offers a time period for current families to enroll and reserve their spot before opening up registration to the public.

Please provide two week written notice to the office when unenrolling your child.  If a child is absent for one week without notice to the office or tuition is not paid by Friday, the child will be considered unenrolled.
