Enrollment Procedures

Thank you for your interest in Learn A Lot Academy. Choosing a quality child care program is one of the most important decisions you will make. We take your decision seriously and are committed to living up to the important responsibility of caring for your child.


Enrollment in Learn A Lot Academy is open to all children ages birth to five years, regardless of race, gender, color, religion, political persuasion, national origin, handicap, ancestry, or sexual orientation. Learn A Lot also offers summer camp and before/after school service for elementary students between the ages of 6-12.

Enrollment Step 1: Check Availability

If you are interested in enrolling your child in Learn A Lot Academy, please check to see which openings are available. If there are no openings available, please add your name to the wait list.  We will contact you as soon as an opening becomes available.

Enrollment Step 2: Tour

Learn A Lot invites families looking for child care to schedule a tour of our  facilities. A tour will allow you to see all of the spaces where your child will play and learn each day. By visiting the center, you will get the best feel for whether the atmosphere is a good fit for your family. All families have different needs, but here is a guide that has been put together by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) that shows what every family should look for in a quality child care program.

Tours are offered by appointment during established office hours.  To schedule an appointment, please call 816.353.1942.

Enrollment Step 3: Enrollment Packet

​After meeting with Learn A Lot staff and agreeing on determined child care, the child(re)n will be accepted into Learn A Lot Academy on a 2 week trial basis. After such time we will review this arrangement to see if there are any changes that need to be made. We will also determine if this is the best placement for your child(ren).


The parent/guardian must complete an enrollment packet, which includes:  

  • Head Start Enrollment Form (OR)

  • Non-Head Start Enrollment Form

  • Parental Agreement Form

  • Health and History

  • Development Form

  • Ages and Stages Socio-Emotional Questionnaire

  • Nutrition Form

  • Physical and Dental, required before being enrolled and on a yearly basis.

  • Signed Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Income eligibility form for Child Care Centers

  • Dietary Substitution/Restrictions form (if applicable)

  • Proof of current health coverage

  • Current Immunization Record    

  • Physical and Dental, required before being enrolled and on a yearly basis.

*All forms must be filled out completely and returned to the administrative staff prior to your child’s first day of attendance.  Parents/Guardians are responsible for keeping immunizations current and must provide the office with any updated documentation.


** Please notify Learn A Lot staff of any address, phone, or job changes. For your child’s safety, we need accurate information to ensure the fastest way to contact you in case of an emergency.


Parents (mother, father or both) are required to schedule a site visit with the director and/or family advocate.  The child, accompanied by an adult, will be required to visit with his/her class prior to his/her first day of school.  If you feel that the transition will be difficult for your child we recommend that you schedule a  couple of short visits prior to leaving your child for the first time.
