October 2014-January 2015 - School Tours

The first step in the UCDS admission process is the school tour. A tour is a required part of application to UCDS. Of course the best way to get to know UCDS is to visit our campus; please fill out the "How to Apply" form to initiate the 2015-2016 application process.


January 14, 2015 - Application Deadline

UCDS accepts up to 300 applications each year. Applications received after we reach 300, but by January 14th, will be held and made active as space for applicants becomes available.

Families need to submit only the preliminary application form and $85 application fee to place within the 300 application threshold. All additional application documents are due by January 14th. We encourage families to apply before the deadline. To initiate the application process, click here.

Parent Tour Information

We conduct tours to give prospective families an opportunity to see the school in action. Please remember, tours are for parents only—your child will have an opportunity to visit UCDS at a later time.

During your tour, you will have the opportunity to see our preschool through 5th grade programs and specialists. Your tour includes time in a classroom, working with our students, followed by a walk-through of the entire campus. We end the morning with the Head of School sharing the school's philosophy and hallmark programs, followed by an opportunity to talk with members of the faculty.

Parent tours begin at 9:00am and finish at 11:00am. Doors open at 8:45am.

Thank you for your interest in University Child Development School. Please or call the Admission Office (206-547-8237) if you have any questions.
