Enrollment at Coastal Day School is open to all children without discrimination in regard to sex, race, color, religion, or beliefs. Registration forms and registration fees must be completed and submitted prior to their start date. 


‚ÄčOur morning program is full for the 2024-2025 school year, which starts September 2024. If you would like to add your child to the waiting list, please click the button below. We do still have spaces in our afternoon preschool program and would love for your family to join us!! If you would like to enroll in our afternoon program, please contact us at 910-383-3919!!

We are SO excited that your family is interested in joining our family here at Coastal Day School!! Our school is full of amazing teachers and students and we are sure your little one would be a great addition! Our school year runs from the beginning of September through the end of May. Children must be the age of the classroom they wish to join by August 31st.

We do not offer private tours; however, we do offer Open Houses throughout the year for new families to come and see our facility, meet our staff, and ask any questions they may have! The only exception would be if you received a space in our program and you were unable to attend one of our Open Houses. We would then offer a private tour prior to your deadline to turn in paperwork and the New Student Fee. We advertise all Open Houses on our blog, which can be accessed through a tab at the top of our homepage. 

If you found us mid-year and would like to be added to our waiting list (we only have a waiting list for our current year-we do not have waiting lists for future years), please click on the link above to add your child. If a space opens, we will contact you to set up a private tour and go over all enrollment information with you. *Waiting lists do not roll over year to year. For example, if your child is on the waiting list this year for our two-year-old program, they do not automatically receive a space in the three-year-old program and will not be added to the three-year-old waiting list unless you add them. Our waiting lists start over every year after Open Enrollment in March. 

Open Enrollment is March 1st each year at 7pm. This is done online and is first come, first serve. All information for enrollment is advertised on our blog beginning in mid-January. This is the only time to enroll unless you received a space from being on our waiting list. Again, we do not offer tours before or after enrollment unless you received a space and were unable to attend an Open House.

Please take the time to review our Handbook below and check out our blog. We would be happy to answer any questions you were unable to find on there!!
