Student Observations

Bridge-Kindergarten

Each Bridge-K applicant will be observed at his/her preschool or daycare during the month of February by our Bridge-K faculty. The visit is completely unobtrusive and children do not know that they are being observed.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten applicants will be invited to an organized “playdate” at Tehiyah in February. While the children are participating in activities with our Kindergarten teachers and a small group of other applicants, prospective parents will have the opportunity to meet with our Head of School for Q & A.

Enrollment

In agreement with all EBISA schools (East Bay Independent School Association), admission letters will be mailed on Thursday, March 16, 2017. Contracts and deposits for accepted students are due back by Friday, March 24, 2017.
