Early Notification Policy

2017-18 Admissions: Early Notification Policy 

The Columbia University Affiliated Child Care Centers offer an optional early notification of their admissions decision to the applicant families who are current and prospective faculty, staff and students of Columbia University. If interested, parents should ask each center director for information about the age groups covered by the Early Notification policy.  

Centers cannot require parents to opt for early notification but will ask for interest in writing prior to making final admissions decisions.

If a qualifying family chooses to be included in the early notification process, the Center will notify parents of their decisions after December 5 and no later than January 20. 

The early notification Parent Reply Deadline is no later than noon on January 27, 2017. 

Feel free to contact Carolyn Singer, at to discuss Early Notification or other admissions questions that arise.
