No one should teach who is not in love with teaching.

The enrollment process is completed in two steps. Step One consists of determining a child's eligibility for child care, subsidy, or Head Start. Once a child is eligible, Step Two is completed. Step Two consists of paperwork mandated by licensing, CACFP, and Nest for children enrolled in our program.


STEP ONE: All families will enroll with Nest Child Care and Parent Institute. The enrollment process is initiated with the family paying registration fee and completing the Enrollment and CDC application.


Enrollment Application

  • Must also submit valid birth certificate or verification of birth

  • Must also submit current immunization record (shot record)

DHS/CDC Application

Please make copies of birth certificate, immunization, and DHS Application/Verification for our records.

STEP TWO: Once the Nest receives DHS approval, Head Start acceptance, or if it is determined that the family will be paying out of pocket, they may complete the remaining enrollment forms. If the family is eligible for Head Start, we will notify the Family Services Worker to assist with completing the remaining enrollment forms for Early/Head Start. An appointment may be necessary.
