A completed Waiting List Application must be submitted to the FSU Childcare & Early Learning Program Office to apply for admission to our center. When the completed application is received in our office, the child is placed on our waiting list. The application is available on our website at this link, Enrollment–Waitlist Application .
Anyone may apply for admission to the program, however, priority for enrollment is given to FSU students, FSU faculty and staff, and alumni.
We maintain one central waiting list for our center. As the list is usually long, especially for children under 12 months old, it is important to apply as early as possible. The average wait time for enrollment varies.
Children are not enrolled on a first come, first-served basis. Spaces are filled based on a comprehensive approach with consideration given to state and accreditation mandated teacher/child ratios, classroom space available and age of children on the waiting list for that space, balanced enrollment ratios for students and faculty/staff, student pell grant status and student military status. As children continue to age while on the waiting list, they are automatically considered for any space that becomes available for which they qualify for by age.
