We currently have a few openings in our 5 & 6 year old class for the 2017-2018 school year!

Please contact us if you are interested!

Enrollment in the Priscilla Pond Flawn Child and Family Laboratory is open to the greater Austin community. Enrollment is done by application according to the following priorities:

  • Birthdate
  • Gender
  • Date of application

Preference is given to siblings of children already or formerly enrolled in the program.

Re-enrollment of children currently enrolled in the program takes place in February and March of each year. Open enrollment to the community begins the beginning of April until all the spots are filled. The program will contact those families who have applied and have been placed on the waiting list.

There are two ways to complete our waiting list application, online or by mail. You will receive an e-mail notification within 48 business hours after your application is processed. Once you have turned in an application to be placed on our waiting list we ask that all families schedule a tour of our facility. You are given 24 hours to make a decision when a spot is offered to your family so it is important that you have visited and are familiar with our program. Please notify the school of any changes to your contact information so that we may efficiently and accurately reach you should a spot become available.

Online Application

Complete our online waiting list application. Once completed, please make sure that you click on the link to pay your $35 application fee. Your application will not be processed until your fee is accepted.

If you are expecting a child(ren), please fill out the birth announcement form once your child has arrived.

Mail-in Application

Download and return the mail-in waiting list application, along with the $35 nonrefundable fee, at your earliest convenience and you will be added to our waiting list. If you are expecting a child(ren), turn in the birth announcement form once your child has arrived.

What our Parents are Saying...

"We chose the lab school primarily because of the rich play-based curriculum of the school, in addition to the low student-to-teacher ratio, which helps each student develop a strong bond with his or her teachers and to confidently explore their new surroundings. The lab school is the best environment for children from toddlerhood through the age of 6 and it embodies the best school that children can attend to prepare them for their journey in academia beyond the lab school."
