Enrollment

Enrollment in SEEC is based upon an annual random number drawing lottery process that includes consideration of factors such as parents’ place of employment, child’s birth date, and sibling status. Smithsonian employees get priority for all open spaces at SEEC. Each March, enrollment for all ages is determined for the upcoming fall through the lottery process. If a vacancy occurs during the year, a child will be selected from the remaining applicants according to the same lottery results, but always giving priority to Smithsonian staff members.

All applications should be returned to SEEC along with the application fee (based on a sliding scale). The application fee is based on a sliding scale ($15 – $50). A nominal fee is charged to reapply each year. Application DOES NOT guarantee enrollment.
