Visiting Mandell
Once your application has been received and processed by our Admissions Office, you will be contacted by a member of our admissions staff to schedule your parent tour and child play visit, which will take place on two separate dates between October and January. Only one parent is required to attend the tour; however, we ask that both parents attend if possible.  This does not apply, of course, to single parents. An application is not considered complete until families have toured and visited for their child play visit. Once your appointments have been scheduled, we are only able to offer alternate appointment times in the event of child illness.

Child Play Visit
Children and one parent attend a small group play visit. 
 
Parent Tour
Small group tours, guided by current Mandell parents, take place Monday through Friday. These tours are for parents only and are followed by a short Q & A session with the Director.
