Hi - Regarding the Oxford Street cooperative:
We submitted an application 11/12 (when I was pregnant). We didn't hear
back from the center; (they took our application fee) when we asked about
the waitlist a while later we were told all spots would probably go to
siblings of current children at the coop. It also looks like they have a
contract year starting in the fall, according to their website. I called
recently, curious about the wait list and potential openings as our daycare
situation was changing. I received a voice mail responding to the message I
had left-- but the person who left it was confused as to my name (I was
clear in my message) and had an annoyed tone to her voice. Perhaps this was
a strategy to get me to keep from calling back. If so it worked.

What I will say is it is likely a waste of money to pay an application fee
here. Judging from the number of people at their open house event they make
a decent amount of money from fees that will never resolve in a child
getting in.
