Enrollment and Fees
Preschool Enrollment and Tuition
The school is licensed by the State of California for 34 children. We accept children from two years nine months to five years nine months old.
The school is open from 7 AM until 6 PM, Monday through Friday, throughout the year except for major holidays and scheduled teacher conference and training days.
Upon application for enrollment, a $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required. An annual $90.00 materials fee is also required, due with your first month’s tuition.
Enrollment priority shall be given to children and siblings enrolled in the previous year and church members. Waiting lists will be maintained throughout the school year. It is understood that enrollment is continuous from the beginning date and that there will be no reduction of fees for withdrawal.
A month’s written notice is required for withdrawal of a child from the preschool (i.e., Parent will be responsible for tuition for one month from the date of written notification of impending withdrawal).
Fees per student, per month are as follows:
|Five mornings (7:00 AM – 1:00 PM)||$1033.00|
|Four or Five day, Full-day (7:00 AM – 4:30 PM)||$1240.00|
|Three day, Full-day||$1033.00|
|After-Care Program – 4:31 PM – 6 PM
|Five Days||$150 per month|
|Four Days||$120 per month|
|Three Days||$90 per month|
If a child begins mid-month, your tuition will be pro-rated. Tuition and fees are due and payable on the 1st and no later than the 5th of the month. A $20.00 late fee will be charged to tuition payments received after the 5th of the month. Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before the 5th of the month to avoid a late fee. There is a $20.00 fee charge for checks returned by the bank.
Absences and Time Away From School
Full tuition is paid regardless of illness or family trips or vacations. This is necessary to ensure a stable revenue.
There are no reduction in tuition for absences due to illness. Periodic absences are taken into consideration when the fees are set.
For an extended one to two month leave of absence (vacations, family trips etc.) written notification 1 month prior to withdrawal and one-half of each month’s tuition is required to hold a place for your child.
There is no reduction in fees for school holidays. Alternate child care should be arranged for these days.
There are no day changes once your child’s schedule has been established.
Termination of Enrollment
There are no deductions or refunds in tuition or registration fees. Enrollment of a child may be suspended or terminated:
- Upon withdrawal of the child by parent or guardian (a month’s written notice is required.)
- Upon suggestion of the Director or Co-Directors after a 60 day trial period, if it is felt that it is in the best interest of the child not to continue in the program.
