Wait List

We do enrollment through out the year as openings become available. Our first priority is to families employed at the San Francisco Airport, Mills-Peninsula Hospital, and siblings of families already enrolled at Palcare. We receive funding from these employers to give their employees priority on our waiting list. About 50% of our enrollment will go to these families. We have openings available to families from the general community and those spaces will got to children on our wait list. The average child is on our wait list from 3 to 6 months before enrollment. Your wait may be less or more based on your child's age and the spaces available.


Palcare tours are offered twice monthly on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM. No appointment is necessary. After touring Palcare you can join our wait list for a non-refundable fee of $50.

The majority of openings are available at the end of June through September. The openings will be given first to children graduating from our Toddler Program and then to SFO Airport, and Mills-Peninsula Hospital families. When there are more openings available, they will then go to community families from our wait list.
