Registration Process

Program policies and tuition are set by the Upper Arlington Board of Education. Any family may apply, but until February first priority is given to current Burbank families and then to UA residents. The date of application is the tie-breaker when situations are identical. Registration is ongoing and applications are accepted a year ahead of the intended enrollment time. Families applying for immediate enrollment are contacted once their registration forms are returned. Families applying for the following year can expect notification calls by early March. To enroll, return the completed registration form (both sides) and a non-refundable $50 fee.

Current BECS Families

Currently enrolled families and wait-list families will be contacted during the month of January to complete and submit an interest form and a $50 interest fee (per child) payable by check to “BECS” for the upcoming summer and school year. This includes families with returning BECS students for the upcoming summer and school year, any siblings of currently enrolled BECS students, and families with children on the wait list. Families applying for the upcoming summer and school year will be notified in early March of their child’s placement and be contacted about next steps to complete the online registration process.

Wrap Around Kindergarten

Burbank Early Childhood School is pleased to offer families of UA Schools kindergarteners the option of a morning or afternoon wrap-around kindergarten program. 
Morning kindergartners ride the bus from their UA elementary school to BECS for a hot lunch followed by afternoon programming. Afternoon kindergarteners can arrive at BECS as early as 7:00 a.m. for morning programming followed by lunch before riding the bus to their UA elementary school.
For more information, or to schedule a private tour of BECS, please call (614) 487-5155.
