Thank you for your interest in Over the Moon, a toddler through Second Grade Independent Private School boasting two campuses in NY's Hudson Valley. Since its founding in 2012, OTM has been an academically challenging and supportive learning environment rooted in fostering kindness and global citizenship with the needs of the whole child as the highest priority. Each year, we seek to enroll qualified students in our school, based on a variety of criteria including, alignment with our philosophies, their ability to learn successfully in a group environment, school records (if applicable), and student assessments.
If you are seeking enrollment, please take a moment to read about enrollment and tuition.
Application links can also be found on our home page.
STEP #1: COME VISIT!
We are thrilled you are interested in joining our OTM Family! Before filling out an application for enrollment, we suggest everyone participate in a physical tour of their desired campus. So email us to take a tour or attend an Open House. It is important to us that our families meet us prior to enrollment so we can share with you what OTM is all about and answer any questions you may have. Please see below to join one of our group tours.
to schedule a tour. Please include WHICH campus you'd like to tour and your child's age.
STEP #2: REQUEST AN APPLICATION
You took a tour and decided Over the Moon is the best fit for your family or maybe you heard about us and just know OTM is it! Woo hoo! Here's some more great news...even though we follow the traditional school calendar, we also have open enrollment year-round. So, your next step is to fill out an enrollment application. Once we receive your child's application, we will reach out to you. Filling out an application does not guarantee your child a seat, as applications are processed as they are received.
STEP #3: SCHEDULE A STUDENT ASSESSMENT & PARENT INTERVIEW
After we receive your child's application for enrollment, we will call you to schedule an Admissions Assessment/Parent Interview. This is not a cognitive assessment, but more of an opportunity for the student to meet with a teacher so they can assess the child's "school readiness". We take 5-30 minutes to meet with them so we can assess their developmental abilities, chat with parents about the goals they have for their child, and discuss potential placement into an appropriate classroom.
