Interest List Policy and Procedure


Firmly Planted Westside

 Interest List Policy and Procedure 

  • Firmly Planted Westside maintains a file of interested families. This Interest List is made up of prospective member families and former member families who are interested in registering for the next available opening. 

  • Prospective and former members must submit a completed Membership Application before being added to the Interest List. The date on which the form is received will become the family’s current Interest List date. 

  • In order, we assess class space availability and whether there is space for each child in a family.  If there is not space for each child in the family, the next family on the Interest List will be considered, as space allows. 

  • If a family chooses not to register when given the opportunity but still wishes to remain on the Interest List, their Interest List date will remain the same. 

  • We would ask that families let us know if they no longer wish to be on the Interest List as it may delay other families’ registration. 

  • The Membership Coordinator and Firmly Planted Board reserve the right to make exceptions to this policy to fit a specifically identified need (i.e. needing a teacher for a specific class.) 

  • The completed Membership Application is good for two years. At the end of two years, families who desire to remain on the Interest List are welcome to complete a new application keeping their status current. 

  • The Interest List is managed by Kim Macri, our Membership Coordinator.  She can be reached at [email protected]
