Program FAQs

Classes

What ages do you accept?

Our age range depends on classes being offered that year. Our early preschool class starts at two years, while our Kindergartners can be up to six years by the time they graduate.

How do I know where my child fits?

While classes are “generally” based on age, we look more at a child individually to place them in the right group. One child at three years old may be ready for our Pre-K class, while a four year old would fit better with our preschoolers. We will do a simple evaluation of each child to place them where they will benefit the most, and will do a re-evaluation mid year as well as at the end of the year.

What if my under two child is ready?

On some occasions, we will take children as young as 18 months for our early preschool class. Children will need an evaluation, so see if they are ready to fit into this group.

Will my Kindergartener be taught with a 2yr old?

No. If we have children of differing abilities/ages, we will split into two classes.

Do I pay for days my child doesn't attend?

Families are given 2 weeks of un-paid vacation per year. If a child is called out on a regularly scheduled day, payment is still required. No payment is required on days we are closed, (e.g Christmas day).

Do you take paid vacations?

No, if we need to take time off for any reason we will provide a substitute for that day.

We do have a late payment fee of $10/day, as well as a late pick-up fee of $1/minute.

There is a start up fee, due within the first 90days of school, that will be applied to your two-week notice. Supplies, food, and activities are included, though some larger trips may require a field trip fee.
