2024-2025 Peer Model Application
If you are interested in having your child be considered as a peer model for the 2024-25 school year, please click the application link below. It is important to know that this application form is used to put your child on the waitlist and does not guarantee them a peer model spot for next school year.
Peer models are positions within our preschool program for students who do not demonstrate developmental delays. Tuition for peer models is $175 per month (current rate for the 2023-24 school year and subject to change for 2024-25).
The program is located at Woodward Elementary and is in operation Monday through Thursday. Students are assigned to either a morning classroom or an afternoon classroom.
The morning session is in operation from 8:45-11:20 AM and serves primarily 3 year olds and younger 4 year olds.
The afternoon session is in operation from 12:40-3:15 PM and serves primarily older 4 year olds and 5 year olds.
General Peer Model Requirements:
1. Peer models need to be 3 years of age by August 1, 2024.
2. Peer models need to be toilet-trained by the time they enter the program in August 2024.
3. Applicants must be residents of Delaware City Schools or an employee of Delaware City Schools. (We do not accept open enrollment from other districts for preschool.) Proof of residency will need to be provided at the time of acceptance/enrollment.
Peer model spots are assigned based upon the number of spots available for the upcoming school year and the date/time stamp of the application submission. Notifications will be provided to families by March 31, 2024 as to whether their child has been accepted as a peer model or not.
***If your child is currently a peer model for the 2023-24 school year in our program, you do NOT need to fill out another application as your child's acceptance in our program will continue into next school year if you choose to have them return.
