Admissions to the Preschool are open throughout the year based on available spots on each campus. Inquiring families need to fill out an online application form on our school portal as soon as possible .
Even if we accept applications throughout the year, following the yearly admission timeline is the best way for new families to maximize their chances of securing a spot for their child, as the available places during the school year are scarce.
If you are unsure how to apply, please contact us directly, we are happy to help.
How To Apply
Admission Process 2023 2024
New families residing abroad
We accept new applications throughout the year. We understand that moving to France can be decided at the last minute, as much for professional as well as personal reasons. Hence, your request is not subject to a deadline, if we can.
Application form submission
Our decisions on a first-come, first-served basis. If your application is received after, it might be placed on a waiting list. Therefore we ask families to fill in and submit an application form as soon as possible.
As it is always better for us to meet the child, we kindly ask families to let us know of their trips to France, should they plan any, so that we may benefit from it to meet them.
Phone call with the Director
Should a real visit to the school not be possible, we will organize a phone call between both parents and the Director of the Preschool. After having applied online, we also ask families to add the following elements to the application via the application portal:
- The school reports of their child’s current school, or, if they are unable to provide such documents, a letter of recommendation of the school.
- A video, or various footage, introducing their child to us.
We will communicate our decision as soon as possible.
New families residing in France
Registrations for the 2023 2024 school year are now open. We do accept new applications throughout the year if spots are available.
If you currently live abroad, please apply and indicate you do not reside in France. A special process for parents abroad is available.
Application form submission and Circletime event
Families are encouraged to fill in and submit an application form online as soon as possible. We will then contact them to organize a campus visit for their child to participate in a Circletime.
This visit is the perfect occasion to meet our team!
Meeting the Director
After the campus visit, we will organize a meeting with the Director of the Preschool. This meeting requires the presence of both parents without the child. This meeting aims to exchange directly with parents, present our program and answer any questions.
We will communicate our decision as soon as practicable.
Finalizing the enrollment
Once parents have been contacted by school staff, they will need to finalize their child's enrollment by paying the non-refundable deposit and the enrollment fees. The registration must be completed within ten days of receiving the offer, or another family may be offered the spot.
At L'Ecole Koenig, the online initial application submission is free. There is a non-refundable application fee of 350 euros billed at the end of the application process, only in the case of an admission at the school. This fee finances the general admission costs.
Our team has established a financial aid package for our Preschool families based on family revenue, and we encourage all interested families to apply.
