How to Apply
We currently have TWO cohorts with mixed ages and set schedules to accommodate staggering requirements (8:30am-3:30pm, 9:00am-4:00pm) with a set tuition rate of $1840 per month (2020-2021 Rate). We are working on a plan for schedules, tuition, and classroom set-up for the 2021-2022 school year but are limited to extending our current options until CA Child Care Licensing eases regulations for cohort sizes. We are welcoming applications based on our pre-COVID schedules in order to understand the needs of our families but will not deposit fees until we confirm that you are still interested in applying based on our final set-up for the new school year.
Applications are accepted year round. There are five items that need to be submitted to the Preschool Office for a completed application:
Copy of your child’s birth certificate, official hospital/medical record, or passport
One-time $60 Application fee for each application – cash or check (written to GGA Kids Marin)
Recent photo of your child - individual or with family
MAIL TO: GGA Kids Marin, 201 Seminary Drive, Mill Valley, CA 94941
The Director will call the phone number provided on the Application to inform the parent/guardian of acceptance into the program. The Applicant will have 48 hours to accept the available spot, unless otherwise noted by the Director.
GGA Kids Marin is CA Licensed Preschool. We accept healthy children ages 2 to 5 years of age. Children are required to be potty-trained to enter the 3-year old and 4-year old classes. Parents are required to tour the facility before being accepted into the program.
GGA Kids Marin is a private school and reserves the right to accept or refuse any application. If an application is refused for any reason, the application fee will be refunded within 30 days of the refusal notice. Race or ethnic background is not a factor in admissions. Refunds are not available for applications that are withdrawn. The submission of an application, signed by parent or legal guardian, along with application fee does not guarantee enrollment or indicate any right to available spaces at GGA Kids Marin.

Polio (OPV or IPV) 3 Immunizations

“A personal beliefs exemption is no longer an option for entry into child care; however a valid personal beliefs exemption filed with a child-care facility before January 1, 2016 is valid until entry into the next grade span (transitional kindergarten through 6th grade) and may be transferred between child-care facilities in California. For complete details, visit ShotsforSchool.org.” (CDPH)
