This year, our application season is beginning earlier than in the past and applications are now open! New students may apply by clicking HERE. Current students do not need to confirm their re-enrollment at this time; their spots will be held until our reverification process later in the year.

While applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, we anticipate that the Toddler class will fill quickly and there are a limited number of spots in Latchkey. 

Please reach out with any questions. We’re excited to welcome new students to Farber! Spread the word to families who might be interested in joining our community or let us know HERE if there is a family who we should reach out to.

the nation.
