ENROLLMENT PROCESS

All children of suitable age are eligible for enrollment at HPMS. HPMS admits students of any race, color, religion, nationality or ethnic origin, guaranteeing all rights, privileges, programs and activities accorded to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, nor in any of its school-administered activities. 

 Children enter the Toddler program between 16 months and 2 years, and move to the Children's House between 31 and 33 months. The Children's House is a three-year program. The children start the program between 2 years 9 months and 3 and graduate at age 6. The guides do have the authority to choose from the applicants those children who would best balance their classes with regard to age and gender.
