A completed Request for Enrollment Application must be submitted to the FSU Childcare & Early Learning Programs Office to apply for admission to our child development centers. When the completed application is received in our office, the child is placed on our waiting list. The application is available on our website at this link, Enrollment–Waitlist Application . You may also contact our office at 850–644–7970 and complete the application by telephone.
Priority is given to full–time, currently enrolled, FSU students. The next priority is given to FSU faculty and staff, followed by FSU Alumni and, finally, other interested parents in the community.
We maintain one central waiting list for our centers. As the list is usually long, especially for the Infant and Toddler Child Development Center, it is important to apply as early as possible.
The average wait time for enrollment varies depending on the parent classification (i.e. FSU student, FSU staff/faculty, FSU Alumni, community) and the age of the child.
As children continue to age while on the waiting list, they are automatically considered for any space that becomes available at any center for which they qualify for by age.
