The goal of Tender Roots’ admission process is to create a community of neighborhood children and families, who actively support the school and neighborhood.
When making admissions decisions, Tender Roots provides priority admission for the following applicants:
- Current students of Tender Roots
- Siblings of current or past Tender Roots students
- Members of the Community United Methodist Church
- Local residents that are stroller accessible
The remaining spaces are filled in an effort to create a balance between ages, gender, parents and caregivers. Acceptance is based on the above criteria and determined by the staff and admissions committee. Tender Roots does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or religion.
