*If you are interested in attending a tour that is full, please contact our admissions coordinator at 415-625-9583 or at admissions@potrerokids.org to be added to our waiting list. 

  • How do I register for a tour?

A link to our online tour sign-ups is available below. Please note that tours are first come, first served.


  • What if I am unable to attend a tour?

Attending a tour does not positively or negatively impact your application status. Tours are an opportunity for families to see our PK3 campus and learn more about our program in an effort to aid in your decision-making process.

  • How many spots does PK enroll per year?

The number of spots we have on a given year depends on a variety of factors including sibling priority, Eastern Neighborhood live/work priority, gender, age, part time/full time space and diversity. Currently, our Potrero Kids at Daniel Webster (PKDW) campus accommodates 32 children, age 4-5. Our PK3 campus accomodates 67 children, ages 2, 3 and 4. For more information on our admissions process, please see our admissions timeline.

If you are no longer interested in the program or if your preference for part time or full time enrollment has changed, please email us at admissions@potrerokids.org so we can note that on your application.

  • Are there any spaces available for this current year of 2018-19?

There may be opportunity for enrollment throughout the year. Once you complete an application you are automatically added to our waitpool. If a spot opens up throughout the year, we contact families from the waitpool on an individual, as needed basis.

Many thanks for your interest. We look forward to meeting you on a PK3 Tour or during admissions interviews.
