Admission Requirements

Our school is open to all who desire a Christian preschool education for their children. There is no discrimination on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin or religion. First consideration, however, will be given to applicants who are members of First Lutheran Church and to siblings of children already enrolled. The school is open to children 2 and a half years  to  6 years of age. All children must be fully potty trained prior to the first day of school.

Admission Procedure

An application for admission is available by request; please contact the school office. Informational brochures are available, and parents may make an appointment for a tour of the school. Students may be admitted to Circle of Love Preschool at any time during the school year provided space is available. Each new school year begins the first day after Labor Day. The process for admission in September usually begins in January. At that time, an invitation is mailed to those who have indicated their interest in Circle of Love. They're informed of the schedule for informational meetings and small group tours. Reservations need to be made prior to the tour meeting. Applications are often submitted at the end of the group tour.


Though Circle of Love is open year-round, we operate on a school year calendar. Our classes are geared to begin in September. To enroll your child in September you must apply in January. Group tours are offered during the months of January and February. Please call to schedule your tour, (310) 545-5653, ext. 221. If you are interested in enrolling, you may pick up a registration packet at the tour.


If your child is not yet eligible, contact us to put your child's name in our database. We will notify you, by mail, at the beginning of the year your child becomes eligible for enrollment.
