Admissions Process

How to Apply to UMC Preschool – Burlingame:


1. Request a Tour via our website:

We offer private virtual or in-person tours to families interested in learning more about UMCPB.  This is a required first step in our registration process.  Tours allow families to learn about our programs, teaching philosophy, view our excellent facilities and get to know our wonderful teaching staff.  This also gives families the opportunity to ask specific questions.  Tours are offered starting in December and are held on Friday afternoons.  Please use the link “Request a Tour” to sign up.


2. Submit your application (and Registration Fee of $100) 

Online registration begins January 11, 2021 for all new families who have attended a school tour.  Priority Registration for alumni and current families begins online starting December 11, 2020.  We have a $100 non-refundable registration fee for all applications.  

Application acceptance packets will be sent out on March 12,2021.  If you are applying after that date, applications are processed on a rolling basis and families will be notified within one month of submitting their application. 


3. Secure your space (Return Deposit & Enrollment Agreement)

In order to hold a space in your desired class, UMCPB requires our completed Enrollment Agreement and Tuition Deposit be returned within 2 weeks of acceptance letters being sent out.  Tuition Deposit is equal to 1/10th of your annual tuition (or the monthly rate reflected in the pricing details above).
