If you have already submitted a Waitlist Application for one of our KCAA Preschools and would like to submit a Waitlist Application for another sister preschool, please send an email to arclerk@kcaapreschools.org with the following information:

Please refer to the map shown on the Homepage, under Locations. Most of our schools are in the Honolulu area (Kalihi to Hawai’i Kai) with one school on the Windward side of the island in Kailua. We do not have any locations in West Oahu.

We have a year-round program, with a one-week spring recess and a two-week winter break. Generally, new children start in July or August, and current children are “promoted” to their new age-level class throughout the summer. However, we will accept new students at any time of the year, if openings are available.

Yes, we do. Please inquire with the Center Director.

Our Center Directors will accept a waitlist application for a child of any age from birth to four years. Any time after your child is born, you may apply. Your child’s birth date is required on the application. It’s a good idea to start the application process at least a year in advance, and even earlier if possible. Please call the Center Director at the school of your choice, and discuss this question with him or her.
