Our Two-Step Enrollment Process


Here at Berkeley Playhouse, we look at our practices and adjust to new information so that we can improve your and your child’s experience here.

As BPH continues to grow in popularity, our sections fill up fast, sometimes stranding returning students on the waitlist, and often making it difficult, if not impossible, for new students to find an entry point.

This session, in order to reduce the amount of students on wait lists, we are asking parents to sign up for a title rather than a specific section. Our education team will then balance each section to provide the best learning opportunity for all children.

STEP 1: FILL OUR AN APPLICATION FORM
You will receive an email with instructions on how to submit registration forms. Please submit as soon as possible, as priority will be given in the order applications are received.

STEP 2: RECEIVE AN OFFER CODE
You will receive an email with an offer code to your student’s section. At this point, you will have one week to accept and pay for that spot or it may be released.


Enrollment FAQ:


What will you consider when placing a student?

  • The order in which applications are received.
  • The student's grade. We are still grouping students by grade, but the age spread of a section will depend on the number of applicants received for each particular grade.
  • Carpool and friend groups. We know that this is an important factor and we will strive to honor these requests to the best of our ability.

Why are you doing this?

  • Equitable access, we are trying to make sure the needs of our students from various means and backgrounds are included in our program.
  • Reducing the amount of returning students on waitlists. We hope this will also allow us to provide all our wonderful community of returning students a spot in our programs.
  • Creating groups that are balanced by age and ability so we can provide the best experience for all.

What does the new process entail?

  • The first step will to be to fill out a pre-registration form indicating your preferences.
  • Next, you will receive an email with an offer code to your student’s section. This email will include the names of the other students in this section and all important dates. You will have one week to accept and pay for that spot or it may be released.
  • If you do not receive your first choice of section, you may ask to be put on the waiting list for another section.

Thank you for your support and help as we continue to improve and support systems for our students and community. We are always reflecting and evaluating our processes and are grateful for your patience as we trial a new system.
