Eligibility & Enrollment


Children of Georgetown University students, faculty and staff, are eligible for enrollment at Hoya Kids Learning Center, within the below-specified criteria:

GU students must be enrolled in either a degree-seeking program or Certificate program, and must also be enrolled in at least 1 class in 2 out of the 3 semesters in the academic year to maintain eligibility for Hoya Kids Learning Center.

GU Faculty and Staff must be classified as one of the following:

  • A staff employee, hired to work 30 or more hours per week;
  • An academic employee (faculty or academic administrative professional) hired to work at least 75% time;
  • An active fellow.

Eligibility, based on these guidelines, will be verified prior to enrollment through the Registrar’s, Provost’s, and Human Resources offices respectively.

Medstar employees (including medical faculty who are paid by Medstar) are extended a secondary priority after University students, staff and faculty. Due to the high demand from University-affiliated families, enrollment opportunities rarely arise for Medstar families.

Enrollment Procedures

Families must take a tour at some point prior to enrollment; we will not offer your family a space at Hoya Kids until the tour is completed. It is incumbent upon each family to schedule the tour with the Center to ensure that you are eligible to be offered a spot when one becomes available. This allows you the opportunity to determine whether the Center is right for your family before making an enrollment commitment.

The complete enrollment policy, including how offers are made and waiting list policies is available in our parent handbook.

A security deposit of $500 is required once a space has been confirmed and will be applied toward your child’s first month of tuition. Tuition rates include all snacks and milk each day. Children bring their own lunches.

To help ensure that the Center is accessible to all members of the Georgetown University community, families (excluding MedStar employees) with combined income below $150,000 are eligible for scholarships. These scholarships are based on the availability of funds. Please contact Hoya Kids Learning Center for more information.
