Frequently asked questions

When is tuition due?


Tuition is due by the first of every month. For example, tuition for the month of September is due by September 1st. A $20 late fee will be charged to accounts that are not paid by the 7th of the month. Parents are encouraged to enroll with auto pay to avoid late fees.




Do you have quiet time or snack time?


Midway into class we will have a short rest time with quiet music, a story and a snack. If you child has a special dietary need or allergies, please contact your teacher to arrange for special snacks.




What is your drop off and pick up policy?


Please drop off your child no more than 5 MINUTES before class time. The first 15 minutes of class time is our welcome time so it is not necessary to arrive any earlier. Please pick up your child no later than 10 MINUTES after the end of class. We realize that unforeseen things happen and there will be times when you will be late. Be reassured that there will always be a teacher and an aide with your student, until you can arrive. Cell phones are great for these kinds of emergencies. Let us know before hand if at all possible. Please be considerate to your child and your child’s teacher by being prompt in picking up your child.




Does my child need to be potty trained?


Being potty-trained means to us; that your child can take care of all their bathroom needs by themselves, if a potty accident happens we will call you and make your child as comfortable as possible until you arrive.
